Abstract
    The International Commission is asked to (1) use its plenary powers to (a) set aside all designations of type-sp for the gen Polycarpa Heller, 1877, made prior to the ruling here requested and (b) having done so to designates the nominal sp Cynthia pomaria Savigny, 1816, to the type-sp of that gen; (c) rule that the specific name pomaria Savigny, 1816 as published in the binomen Cynthia pomaria, is to be given precedence over the specific names singularis Gunnerus, 1770, as published in the binomen Ascidia singularis, and mamillaris Pallas, 1774, as published in the binomen Distomus mamillaris, by any zoologist who considers that those names, or pomaria and any other of them apply to the same sp-group taxon; (2) place the name Polycarpa Heller, 1877 (gender: female), type-sp Cynthia pomaris Savigny, 1816, by designation under the plenary powers in (1) (b) above, on the Official List of Generic Names in Zoology; (3) place the following names on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology: (a) pomaria Savigny, 1816, as published in the binomen Cynthia pomaria (the name of the type-sp of Polycarpa Heller, 1877) with the endorsement that it is to be given precedence over the specific names Ascidia singularis Gunnerus, 1770 and Distomus mammillaris Pallas, 1774, by any zoologist who considers that those names or pomaria and any other of them, refer to the sp-group taxon; (b) singularis Gunnerus, 1770, as published in the binomen Ascidia singularis with the endorsement that the name is not to be used by any zoologist who considers that the name refers to the same sp-group taxon as the name Cynthia pomaria Savigny, 1816; (c) mamillaris Pallas, 1974, as published in the binomen Distomus mamillaris, with the endorsement that the name is not to be used by any zoologist who considers that the name refers to the same sp-group taxon as the name Cynthia pomaria Savigny, 1816.
