One example that I am concerned about involves the alleged homonymy of Chaetosoma, replaced by Opitz (2014), but has implications for the availability of the family name CHAETOSOMATIDAE. There is little or nothing to suggest that Chaetosoma Dejean, 1835 is an available name, and the other homonymys have already been dealt with by the ICZN.
