ATAENIUS Harold, 1867

Ataenius Harold 1867b: 82

= Aphodinus Motschulsky 1862: 55 - ICZN 2010: 97 (syn. nov.)

Synopsis. Stebnicka 2001b, 2002b, 2003 b, 2004, 2005, 2006a, 2007a, 2007b; Stebnicka and Lago 2005 (New World)

Note 1. Harold uses the name Ataenius for the first time in 1867b: 82 in connection with A. scutellaris , A. opatrinus , A. capitosus , A. perforatus and A. hispidus , but the actual description of Ataenius is given in Harold 1867d: 100. According to ICZN (1999: 16) Article 12.2.5, the name of the genus is made available in the former publication.

Note 2. The generic name Aphodinus Motschulsky, 1862 (p. 55) is a senior synonym of Ataenius Harold, 1867 ( 1867b: 82). The name Ataenius is given precedence over the name Aphodinus in Opinion 2241 (Case 3377) by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (2010: 97) after a proposal made by Howden and Smetana (2007: 39).
