Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature
The purpose of this application is to conserve the current (and original) understanding of the name Xerammobates Popov, 1951 for a subgenus of ammobatine parasitic bees. The synonym Micropasites Warncke, 1983 is a junior homonym. The present type species of Xerammobates, i.e. Ammobates biastoides Friese, 1895, belongs to Ammobates sensu stricto and was misidentified by Popov. It is proposed that Ammobates (Xerammobates) oxianus Popov, 1951 be designated as the type species.
