The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature desires to draw attention to an error in the material it recently issued with respect to proposals submitted to the Commission for the suspension of the Règles Internationales (Science, November 21, 1947, pp. 487-488). On page 488 (item 11), it was erroneously stated that one of the proposals was for the validation of the name Raphistoma Rafinesque, 1815 (Pisces). The application in question was, in fact, that the Commission should suppress the above name and validate the name Raphistoma Hall, 1847 (Gastropoda). The Commission greatly regrets any inconvenience which may have been caused by the erroneous entry referred to above. (FRANCIS HEMMING, secretary to the Commission.)
