3) OPINION

The name Remipedes Dumeril 1805, being a French spelling only, can be interpreted as a Latin name Remipedia, with authorship "Dumeril 1805"; in this case the name Remipedia Yager 1981 can be interpreted as a preoccupied name. In spite of this fact, the name Remipedia Yager 1981 should be valid, because its senior homonym, being a junior synonym of Hydrocanthari Latreille 1802, is out of use during two centuries.
