Necessary changes of names in Hydrachnellae (Arachnida: Acari)

Abstract : A junior homonym was detected amongst the Acari, and Acerbitas is proposed as a replacement name for Thyas Koch, 1835 (Hydrachnellae: Hydryphantidae: Thyadinae). Accordingly, new combinations are proposed for all valid species currently included in the genus Thyas. The subfamily name Thyadinae [=Thyasinae] Viets, 1926 is corrected to Euthyasinae Viets, 1931 (Hydryphantidae).
