Kerzhner for his comments (above) on this apphcation. I accept his argument that Notonecta marginata is a senior subjective synonym not of A^. obliqua, as Dr Polhemus and I believed when submitting our application, but of Sigara coleoptrata (now in Cymatia). Resurrecting the long-unused name A^. marginata would cause considerable confusion since C. coleoptrata is well known in the recent literature (for example, Bernhardt, 1985, p. 6; Nieser, 1978, p. 282; Savage, 1989, six entries; a further 26 references by 28 authors over the last 35 years are held by the Commission Secretariat). It follows that the Commission should be asked to conserve the name S. coleoptrata and place it on the Official List. The lectotype of C coleoptrata is a male specimen in the Copenhagen Museum (see Jansson, 1986, p. 21). I agree with Dr Kerzhner that N. obliqua should still be placed on the Official List. As stated in para. 2 of my application with Dr Polhemus the original material seems no longer to exist. It is possible that a suitable neotype could be selected from the collections of the Swedish Museum of Natural History, but this seems unnecessary at this time since there is no dispute about the identity of the species. I agree with Dr Kerzhner that authorship of A', obliqua should be attributed to Thunberg and not to Gallen; indeed, our application to the Commission was originally so framed. The three requests made to the Commission in para. 5 of my application with Dr Polhemus still stand, except that authorship of Notonecta obliqua should be attributed to Thunberg and not Gallen in Thunberg. The following request is now added: (4) to place on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology the name coleoptrata Fabricius, , as published in the binomen Sigara coleoptrata.
