History of Case 2588
An application to confirm Haminoea as the correct original spelling of the name for a marine gastropod genus was received from Dr Riccardo Giannuzzi-Savelli (Palermo, Italy) on 1 December 1986. After correspondence the case was published in BZN 44: 166-167 (September 1987). Notice of the case was sent to appropriate journals.
The subsequent history of the case, leading to the publication (BZN 47: 263-269; December 1990) of a further application to conserve the spelling Haminaea Leach, 1820, was set out in BZN 56: 49-50 (March 1999).
A number of authors commented on the case (BZN 56: 50-56), and all supported the original proposal that the spelling Haminoea [Turton], 1830 should be accepted as correct. Comments were received from Dr Riccardo Gianuzzi-Saveill (Palermo, Italy), Mr Robert Burn (Geelong, Victoria, Australia), Dr Richard C. Willan (Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin, Australia), Dr W.B. Rudman (Australian Museum, Sydney, Australia), Dr C.W. Bryce (Museum of Natural Science, Perth, Australia), Dr Hamish G. Spencer (University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand), Dr Philippe Bouchet (Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, France), Dr Michael Schroedl (Zoologisches Institut, Ludwig-Maxilians-Universität, München, Germany), Dr Julie Marshall (La Trobe University, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia), Dr T.M. Gosliner (California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.), Dr Paula M. Mikkelsen (American Museum of Natural History, New York, N.Y., U. S A.) and Dr Heike Waegele (Spezielle Zoologie, Ruhr-Universität, Bochum, Germany).
Proposals for voting on this case, which followed those of the original application (BZN 44: 166) and which did not require the use of the plenary power, were set out in BZN 56: 56 (March 1999).
