Abstract

It is shown that the genus name proposed for a flatworm, Ichthyophaga Syromiatnikova, 1949, is not preoccupied by the name frequently used for a genus of fishing eagles, Ichthyophaga Lesson, 1843, since usage of the latter in modern ornithological publications is actually based on a subsequent misspelling or an unjustified emendation of the original generic name Icthyophaga Lesson, 1843. Despite this one-letter difference, a replacement name for the flatworm genus is necessary due to the prevailing usage in ornithology of the generic name spelled as Ichthyophaga. As replacement name the generic name Piscinquilinus nomen novum is proposed.
