To the Editor: Within the week I have received two just-published I.C.Z.N. Opinions that have a special interest in tropical medicine, and you may wish to bring them to the attention of readers of the AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND HYGIENE.

OPINION 283. Validation, under the Plenary Powers, of the generic and specific names commonly used for the Malignant Tertian Malaria Parasite and the Quartan Malaria Parasite respectively. , London, Vol. 7, Part 1, Pp. 1–226. (Issued 28 Dec. 1954.)

OPINION 312. Validation, under the Plenary Powers, of the name as from Grassi, 1879, to be the name for the large non-dysenteric amoeba of Man and the designation of that species to be the type species of the genus Casagrandi & Barbagallo, 1895, and designation under the same powers of the name Schaudinn, 1903, to be the name for the dysenteric amoeba of Man (Class Rhizopoda) (Opinion substituted for Opinion 99).
