Rozovia, a replacement name for Nordia Rozova, 1968 (Trilobita) non Jairajpuri and Siddiqi, 1964 (Nematoda), preoccupied

ALEXANDER B. DOWELD

Abstract


The generic name Nordia (N. lepida Rozova, 1968, by original designation) was proposed by Rozova (1968: 108) for a new trilobite genus from the Upper Cambrian of the Tajmyr peninsula (NW Siberia, Krasnojarsk territory, Russian Federation). However, this name was preoccupied by Nordia Jairajpuri and Siddiqi (1964: 2) which is served as a type for a family Nordiidae Jairajpuri & Siddiqi and subfamily Nordiinae Jairajpuri & Siddiqi (Nematoda: Dorylaimida) (Vinciguerra, 2006). To resolve homonymy, in accordance with the article 60 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, Rozovia nom. nov. (type species Nordia lepida Rozova, 1968; Rozovia lepida (Rozova) comb. nov.) is here proposed as a replacement name for Nordia Rozova non Jairajpuri and Siddiqi to honor Antonina Viktorovna Rozova, eminent Russian palaeontologist (Trilobita) and stratigrapher of Siberia.
