Nomenclatural changes in Lucaninae (Coleoptera: Lucanidae)

Abstract : One junior homonym was detected amongst the Lucanidae generic names and the following replacement name is proposed: Pycnosiphorus (Neoepipedus) nom. nov. for Pycnosiphorus (Epipedus) Solier, 1851. Also it is given a clarification on the validity of the generic name Aegus (Eubussea) Zacher, 1913. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genera.
