Plutoniumidae Bollman, 1893


ICZN Opinion 1880 amended the spelling of PLUTONIINAE Bollman to PLUTONIUMINAE by ruling under the plenary power that for the purposes of Article 29 of the Code the stem of the generic name Plutonium Cavanna is PLUTONIUM-. This removed the homonymy with Plutoniinae Cockerell (Gastropoda) (now Plutoniidae).
