Although the name Rahn 1937 was not formed in accordance with the rules of nomenclature, it was conserved by the Judicial Commission in 1958, with Castellani and Chalmers 1919 as the type genus. However, the Judicial Commission recently agreed that exceptions to the formation of names of taxa between subclass and genus would not be accepted. Hence, it is here proposed that the Judicial Commission issue an Opinion changing the type genus of this family from to Hormaeche and Edwards 1960 and the family name from to nom. nov.
