The following eight generic names are recommended for conservation: Brasiliorchis against Bolbidium, Codariocalyx with that spelling, Dehaasia with that spelling, Lepisorus against three generic names (Belvisia, Drymotaenium, Paragramma) but not against Lemmaphyllum and Neocheiropteris, Meiogyne against Fitzalania, Physalis with conserved type, Sobralia with conserved type and Stichorkis with conserved type. The following two generic names are not recommended for conservation: Enicosanthum against Monoon and Isidrogalvia with conserved type. Conservation of Trigonotis against Endogonia was considered to be unnecessary because the Committee recommends that the latter be treated as a homonym of Endogona (see below). The following 14 species names are recommended for conservation: Acrostichum ebeneum with conserved type, Alyssum montanum with conserved type, Amomum villosum with conserved type, Croton arboreus Millsp. against C. arboreus Shecut, Hibiscus simplex with conserved type, Mespilus tomentosa against M. orientalis, Morinda citrifolia with conserved type, Onychium japonicum (Thunb.) Kunze against O. japonicum Blume, Pandanus pervilleanus against P. boucheanus, Pteris arachnoidea against Aspidium brasilianum and P. psittacina, Solidago doronicum with conserved type as amended, Spermacoce capitata Ruiz & Pav. against S. capitata P. J. Bergius, Viola elatior against V. hornemanniana and V. stipulacea, and Zamia integrifolia with conserved type. The following 10 species names are not recommended for conservation: Acalypha alnifolia J. G. Klein ex Willd. against A. alnifolia Poir. and A. capitata, Blechnum hawaiianum against B. norfolkense, Euphrasia kaliformis with conserved type, Filago vulgaris against Gnaphalium germanicum, Gymnadenia rubra against Orchis miniata, Lockhartia oerstedii against Oncidium mirabile, Oreochloa blanka against O. elegans, Senecio gerardi against Inula provincialis, Senecio paucifolius with conserved type, and Viscum serotinum against V. leucarpum. The following 10 species names are recommended for rejection: Corispermum orientale, Croton citrifolius, Heptallon simplex, Maxillaria ramosa, Oncidium mirabile, Solanum ferox, Solanum fuscatum, Sophora lupinoides, Viola montana, and Viola persicifolia. One species name, Echinocactus acanthodes, is not recommended for rejection. It is recommended that with respect to names of genera and species E. Delpy's entire series of illustrations of West African trees be added to the list of suppressed works in Appendix VI. It is recommended that Echinodorus Richard, Podocarpus cunninghamii Colenso, and Primula thearosa Kingdon-Ward be treated as validly published, and that Toulicia eriocarpa Radlk. be treated as not validly published. As noted above, it is recommended that Endogonia (Turcz.) Lindl. and Endogona Raf. be treated as homonyms. After two ballots, no vote of at least 11 either for or against a proposal to superconserve Melianthaceae against Francoaceae has been obtained.
