The following names are homonyms. This means that these taxa, while distinct, share the same name. In some cases no replacement names are currently available for these taxa and in other cases replacement names are not necessary as the taxa are not currently placed within the same genus. When the homonyms are unresolved and placed in the same genus they are distinguished within Antwiki by including the author (and sometimes year and page) as part of the page name for each taxon.

Warning: This discussion relies on an understanding of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. If you don't understand validity, availability or what to do about a junior primary homonym where there are no available replacement names then you might want to have a look at the Code before digging in too deeply. See ICZN or Wikipedia for an introduction to zoological nomenclature.
