Latridiidae Erichson, 1842


Family Latridiidae Erichson, 1842 

Lathridien  Erichson, 1842: 122 [stem: Latridi-]. Type genus: Latridius  Herbst, 1793 [as Lathridius  , unjustified emendation of type genus name by Illiger (1802), not in prevailing usage]. Comment: the younger name Latridiidae  has been used widely for this family in recent literature although Pakaluk et al. (1994: 252) and a small number of subsequent authors, e.g., Míka (2000), Lassau et al. (2005), have used the older name Corticariidae  ; an application was recently submitted to the Commission in order to conserve usage of the well-established name Latridiidae  (Bousquet et al. 2010; see Appendix 6).
