The genus name Eurysternodes Martinez 1988 is invalid, as it is junior homonym of Eurysternodes 
Schuster & Summers 1978; therefore a replacement name, Tropicalia nom. nov. for 
Eurysternodes Martinez 1988 nee Eurysternodes Schuster & Summers 1978, is proposed here.

French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Bolivia). 



Miscellaneous Nomenclatural Notes 

Alimet Omer Ko^ak Muhabbet Kemal 

1- Addenda &Corrigenda 

The following replacement names and emendations are necessarily proposed according to the Homonymy 
Rules of the current ICZN (1999). 

In the family Theridiidae (Araneida), Seycellocesa (nom. nov.) is proposed as replacement name 
for Saaristoa Kogak & Kemal,20o8 (Cent. ent. Stud., Misc. Pap. 139-140: 4), as it is preoccupied by the name 
Saaristoa Millidge,i978 (Bull. Br. arachnol. Soc. 4: 123) in the iamWy Liny phiidae. The latter was not listed in 
Neave's Nomenclator Zoologicus so far. See online Version: http://uio.mbl.edu/NomenclatorZoologicus/ . 
Necessary new combination is: Seycellocesa placens (Blackwall,i877) (comb.n.)- 

In the family Acrididae (Orthoptera), Peruviana is proposed as emendation for Peruana Kogak & 
Kemal, 2008 (Cent. ent. Stud., Misc. Pap. 141: 2). 

2- Kutlugia nom. nov. in the family Geometridae (Lepidoptera) 

In the subfamily Ennoniinae, a replacement name Kutlugia nom. nov. is proposed for 
Meganietopon Alpheraky,i892 (in Romanoff, Mem. lepid. 6: 58), as it is junior homonym oi Meganietopon 
Giglio-Tos,i89i (Bol. Mus. Torino 6 (108): 5) (Diptera). The necessary new combinations are as follows: 
Kutlugia grisolaria (Eversmann,i848) (comb.n.) from Russia, Urals; Kutlugia piper atum (Alpheraky,i892) 
(comb.n.) from China, Gansu. Replacement name is proposed after the first Khagan of Uighur Empire in 
Asia (745-1368), Kutlug Bilge Kul-Kliagan. 

3- Nomenclatural Changes in the Order Mantodea (Insecta) 

During the preparation of the database within the Cesa Project entitled "Entomofauna of Old World", 
some junior homonyms among the species and genus group names in the order Mantodea were found. The 
necessary nomenclatural acts are proposed as follows: 

In the family Ma7itj(iae, Aniantis muhabbet (nom. nov.) (Kogak) is proposed as a replacement name 
for Mantis reticulata De Haan,i842 nee Mantis reticulata Burmeister,i838 in the genus Aniantis Giglio- 
Tos,i9i5. The species inhabits in Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Philippine Islands. 

In the famWy Mantidae, Anieles canaria (nom. nov.) is proposed as a replacement name ior Mantis 
limbata Brulle,i838 nee Mantis linibata De Haan,i835. The homonymy between these two names was 
explained by Gurney (1947)^^ for the first time. Kaltenbach's interpretation on the homon}^Tny of Mantis 
limbata BruUe and Mantis limbata De Haan is nomenclaturally incorrect. These names are obviously primary 
homonyms under the current Homonymy Rules of the ICZN (1999). On the other hand, Ameles limbata 
(BruUe) and Ameles gracilis (BruUe) are two different species (Kaltenbach,i979).i3 The species inhabits in the 
Canary Islands; therefore, the replacement name is proposed here after the terra typica of the taxon under 
discussion. 

In the family Mantidae, Entella ehrmanni (nom. nov.) is proposed as a replacement name for 
Mantis nebulosa Audinet-Serville,i839 nee Mantis nebulosa Thunberg,i8i5 in the genus Entella Stal,i877. 
The species inhabits in Cape (South Africa). Replacement name is dedicated to Mr. R. Ehrmann, who has 
great contributions to the Mantodea of the World. 

In the family Mantidae, Paramantis ottei (nom. nov.) is proposed as a replacement name for 
Mantis prasina Audinet-Serville, 1839 nee Mantis prasina Burmeister, 1838 in the genus Paramantis Ragge 



'- Gumey,1947. Proc. ent. Soc. Wash. 49: 251.

& Roy, 1967. Although Mantis emortualis Saussure,i869 and Mantis callifera Wood-Mason, 1882 were 
treated as junior synonymous names of Mantis prasina Audinet-Serville,i839 by Beier (1935) and Ehrmann 
(2002), this interpretation was not followed by Otto et alia,20o8.i4 These authors treated Mantis prasina 
Audinet-Serville,i839 as valid specific name in the genus Paramantis, and the others also valid names of two 
species in the genus Mantis. By considering this latest interpretation as right, we proposed the replacement 
name, Paramantis ottei, and dedicated it to Mr. Daniel Otte, senior author of the well known database 
program, "Mantodea species File Online". The species inhabits in West, South Africa, Madagascar, and 
Reunion Islands. 

In the family Mantidae, Gonypeta humbertiana (Saussure,i869) (stat. rev.) is proposed as valid 
name for the species, as currently used name Mantis punctata De Haan,i842 is junior primary homonym of 
Mantis punctata Stoll,i8i3 in the genus Gonypeta Saussure,i869 (syn.n., hom.n.) The species inhabits in 
Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, Java and Sumatra (Indonesia). 

In the family Mantidae, Tamolanica atricoxis ssp. australia (nom. nov.) is proposed here as a 
replacement name for Tamolanica atricoxis ssp. grandis Wood-Mason, 1882 (J. Asiat. Soc. Bengal 51: 31) nee 
Saussure,i870 (Mitt, schweiz. ent. Ges. 3: 233), as it is junior primary homonym. The name grandis Wood- 
Mason, 1882 is treated as valid subspecific name in two recent important works, 's As the name grandis Wood- 
Mason, 1882 originally proposed in the genus Hierodula like Hierodula grandis Saussure,i870, is clearly 
junior primary homonym of the latter; therefore it cannot be used as valid name for a taxon. 

In the family Mantidae, Photina gymnopyga (Burmeister,i838) (stat. rev.) is proposed as a valid 
name intsead of Mantis vitrea Burmeister,i838 nee Mantis vitrea Stoll,i8i3 in the genus Photina 
Burmeister,i838 (syn.n., hom.n.). Under the Homonym Rules of the current ICZN (1999), Mantis vitrea 
Burmeister,i838 cannot be used as valid name, as it is junior primary homonym of Mantis vitrea Stoll,i8i3.i^ 
The species inhabits in Brazil, and French Guyana. 

In the family Mantidae, Cardioptera sublobata (Audinet-Ser\'ille,i839) (stat. rev.) is proposed as 
valid name for the species, as currently used name Mantis brachyptera Burmeister,i838 is junior primary 
homonym of Mantis brachyptera Pallas,i773 in the genus Bolivaria Stal,i877 (syn.n., hom.n.). The next 
available synonymous name. Mantis sublobata Audinet-Serville,i839 is treated here as valid name for the 
taxon. The species inhabits in South America (Argentina, Brazil, French Guyana, Guyana, and Venezuela). 

In the family Iridopterygidae, Malayamantis (nom. nov.) is proposed as replacement name for 
Xanthomantis Giglio-Tos,i9i5, as it is junior homonym of Xanthomantis Warren, 1909 (Lepidoptera). 
Although this case was reported by Uvarov in 1940, Xanthomantis Giglio-Tos used erroneously as valid name 
for the related taxa so far. The necessary nomenclatural acts are summarized as follows: Pliacanthopus Giglio- 
Tos, 1927 is treated here as valid name of the generic taxon (stat.rev.). New established Malayamantis is 
used here as subgenus name, together with other subgenus name Oligocanthopus Beier,i935. The following 
three species should be treated as Pliacanthopus (Malayamantis) malayanus (Beier, 1931) from Malaya, 
Pliacanthopus (Malayamantis) flavus (Giglio-Tos, 1915) from Sarawak, and Pliacanthopus (Malayamantis) 
bimaculatus (Wang, 1993) from China (Yunnan).

Proctacanthella cesa (nom. nov.) from U.S.A. and Mexico. The name Habropogon heteroneurus Timon & 
David,l95l is proposed as valid name for the taxon. 
Key words: AsiUdae, Diptera, species, nomenclature. 



Within the research Project of the Biodiversity of the World Insects by the Cesa, the following 
homonymy cases among the species-group names in the family Asi'ZicZae (Diptera) are recorded. The necessary 
literary evaluation is based upon the info-sjiiem of the Cesa, in accordance with the related article of the ICZN. 
The following 28 replacement names are proposed for the preoccupied names of the species inhabiting in 
various countries. For one species, a junior synonym is validated for the preoccupied name. Under the 
Homonymy Rules of the current ICZN (1999)^7^ primary or secondary junior homonym names cannot be used 
as valid names for the taxa. 

Within the Cesa Project, Entoniofauna of the Old World^^, the following preoccupied names are 
controlled and replaced necessarily by the new names, by taking various published data in the Cesa Library, as 
well as the worldwide online studies about the family Asilidae.i9 

The temporary results of the ongoing Cesa Project will be published at irregular intervals.
