(1) to use its plenary power to rule that the name rupestris Philippi, 1836, as published in the binomen Bulimus rupestris, is not invalid by reason of being a junior primary homonym of rupestris Krynicki, 1833, as published in the binomen Bulimus rupestris;

(2) to place on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology the name rupestris Philippi, 1836, as published in the binomen Bulimus rupestris, with the endorsement that it shall not be invalid by reason of being a junior primary homonym of rupestris Krynicki, 1833, as published in the binomen Bulimus rupestris."
