The status of the generic nomina Palaeobufo Bolkay, 1919 and Neobufo Bolkay, 1919 (Amphibia, Anura)

Alain DUBOIS urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:14298CB6-14B4-402E-AC86-69D4A867B649 The subgeneric nomina Palaeobufo Bolkay, 1919 and Neobufo Bolkay, 1919 (Amphibia, Anura) have been ignored by all authors until now but are nomenclaturally available. Nucleospecies (type species) are here designated for these two nominal taxa: Rana marina Linnaeus, 1758 for Palaeobufo, which therefore becomes an invalid junior subjective synonym of Rhinella Fitzinger, 1826; and Bufo vulgaris Laurenti, 1768 for Neobufo, which therefore becomes an invalid junior subjective synonym of Bufo Garsault, 1764.
