Abstract: The purpose of this application is to conserve the specific name and typification of the taxon currently known as Scutosaurus karpinskii (Amalitzky, 1922), an abundant fossil pareiasaurian reptile from the Russian Permian. The specific name karpinskii is threatened by the spelling variant karpinskyi, inadvertently published prematurely by Watson (1917) when the full description was delayed by war and the death of Amalitzky; if the name were attributed to the 1917 publication the name-bearing type would not be the skeleton designated as the holotype of Pareiasaurus karpinskii by Amalitzky (1922).
