there is a clear 'Statement of the Principle of Homonymy' in Art. 52.1. of
"When two or more taxa are distinguished from each other they must not be
denoted by the same name".
Genus-group names ending in -ina/ -oidea may be homonyms of subtribe/
superfamily names, e.g.,
Cicindelina (a genus-group name in tiger beetles) is a homonym of subtribe
Cicindelina (based on genus Cicindela).
Do such names enter into homonymy?
Is there a standard ICZN ruling for such cases?
Many thanks in advance!
