Ann Parasitol. 2022 May 3;68(1):195-196. doi: 10.17420/ap6801.425.

Abstract

The generic name Blastocystis has been proposed at least twice for different organisms for which nomenclature is governed by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Blastocystis Jaekel, 1918, is a junior homonym of the generic name Blastocystis Alexeieff, 1911. We propose the following Astroblastocystis nom. nov. as a new replacement name (neonym) for Blastocystis Jaekel, 1918.
