Abstract: To distinguish the gastropod morphology, which had been fi rst represented in the literature by the varieties of “Pleurotomaria foveolata” J. A. Eudes- Deslongchamps, 1849, Szabó (2017) outlined a new genus under the name Foveolaria. However, this name had already been preoccupied by Busk (1884) for a bryozoan genus; its new use meant making a junior (invalid) homonym. To replace that, Kericserispira nomen novum is instituted here in accordance with ICZN Article 60.3 beside the same diagnosis, type species, further included species and higher systematic position as they have been assigned to the invalid name (Szabó 2017, p. 13). Etymology – Kericser is a hillside SW of the village Lókút (Bakony Mts, Hungary) with an excavation in Lower Jurassic Hierlatz Limestone that has yielded specimens of the type species; spira (Latin) = spiral.
