A replacement name, Alcidia Rollier, 1913, for preoccupied genus Paralcidia Spath, 1928 (Ammonoidea: Haploceratina: Oppeliidae)

Abstract :

One proposed genus name, Paralcidia Spath, 1928 in Ammonoidea is nomenclaturally invalid, as the genus group name has already been used by a different author in Lepidoptera. In accordance with Article 60 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, I propose a substitute name, Alcidia Rollier, 1913, for this genus name
