Reversal of precedence for Scarabaeus monoceros Nicolson, 1776, in favor of Scarabaeus oblongus Palisot de Beauvois, 1807 to stabilize the nomenclature of Strategus oblongus (Palisot de Beauvois) from Hispaniola (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Dynastinae)

  • The rediscovery of an older available name threatens the stability of the long accepted name of Strategus oblongus (Palisot de Beauvois, 1807) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) from Hispaniola. Using Article 23.9 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, Scarabaeus monoceros Nicolson, 1776 is designated a nomen oblitum to maintain nomenclatural stability while its junior synonym, Scarabaeus oblongus Palisot de Beauvois, 1807, is designated a nomen protectum.
