The purpose of this application, under Articles 55.3.1 and 81 of the Code, is the suppression of the hemipteran insect genus-group name Scaris Le Peletier & Audinet- Serville, 1828 and family-group names based on it to remove the homonymy between the parrotfish family-group name Scaridi (currently Scaridae) Rafinesque, 1810 (type genus Scarus Forsskål, 1775) and the insect family-group name Scarides (Scaridae) Amyot & Audinet-Serville, 1843 (type genus Scaris Le Peletier & Audinet-Serville, 1828), and also to conserve the usage of the name Docalidia Nielson, 1979 for a large genus of Neotropical leafhoppers.
