IN 1993, Lucas and Williamson coined the name Schochia for a Paleocene mammal (taeniodont) from New Mexico. Michael Oliver has informed me recently that the name Schochia Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1895, is the name of an extant South American grasshopper (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae). Therefore, in accordance with the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, to resolve this homonymy, Robertschochia (type species Schochia sullivani Lucas and Williamson, 1993) is here proposed as a replacement name for Schochia. Robertschochia is named for taeniodont expert Robert Schoch.
