Abstract
    The purpose of this application, under Articles 29 and 55.3.1 of the Code, is to remove homonymy between the family-group names Zosiminae Alcock, 1898 (Crustacea, Decapoda) and Zosimidae Seifried, 2003 (Crustacea, Copepoda) by changing the spelling of the junior homonym. It is proposed that the entire name Zosime Boeck, 1873 (Copepoda) be used to form Zosimeidae, leaving the stem of the senior homonym (based on the name Zosimus A.-G. Desmarest, 1823; Decapoda) unchanged. Zosimus A.-G. Desmarest, 1823 and Zosime Boeck, 1873 are respectively the type genera of Zosiminae Alcock, 1898 (Decapoda) and Zosimidae Seifried, 2003 (Copepoda).
