ABSTRACT. Provision of the exact publication dates for the papers that have appeared and are to appear in Arthropoda Selecta is discussed and shown to strictly follow ICZN Article 21.3. In this connection, the recent rebuttal by Zhao [2019], who, manipulating with publications dates, argued and even reversed the synonymy of two species of Linyphiidae, appears to be superfluous and useless, the correct synonymy of Nasoonaria circinata Zhao et Li, 2014 under N. magna Tanasevitch, 2014, and that of Theoa bidentata Zhao et Li, 2014 under Th. elegans Tanasevitch, 2014, being reinstated.

KEY WORDS: nomenclature, priority, scientific journals.
