Abstract
    The purpose of this application, under Article 23.9.3 of the Code, is to conserve the generic name Glossina Wiedemann, 1830 (Diptera, glossinidae), which is a widely used name for a well-established and medically important genus of tsetse flies. It is threatened by its infrequently used senior subjective synonym, Nemorhina Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830. It is proposed that Glossina Wiedemann, 1830 be conserved by reversing the precedence relative to Nemorhina Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 under the plenary power of the Commission, in the interest of nomenclatural stability.
