validly published, illegitimate name
The name Sinococcus Li et al. 2006 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Sinococcus Wu and Zheng, 2000 (Insecta: Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation Sinobaca Li et al. 2008 has been proposed by Li et al. 2008.Publication:
