Taxonomic and nomenclatural notes on the subfamily Acridinae of the family Hylidae (Amphibia, Anura)

ALAIN DUBOIS, WILLIAM E. DUELLMAN, ANNEMARIE OHLER

Abstract


We propose to recognise two tribes in the subfamily Acridinae of the family Hylidae (Amphibia, Anura) and we point to nomenclatural problems of homonymy between the nomen of this subfamily and two familial nomina of Orthoptera Caelifera. To solve these problems, we propose a solution that requires an action by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature under its Plenary Powers.
