Abstract :

Melanosteus Lelievre & Goujet, 1987 (Placodermi), a junior homonym of Melanosteus Esenack, 1942 (Coelenterata), is replaced by Melanomontanosteus nom. nov. (type species: M. occitanus). Fordonia Marandat, 1989 (Mammalia), a junior homonym of Fordonia Gray, 1842 (Reptilia), is replaced by Ypresocyon nom. nov. (type species: Y. lavocati; included species: Y. lawsoni).
