New substitute names for two preoccupied Tachinid genera Paragonia Mesnil, 1950 and Menetus Aldrich, 1926 (Diptera)

Abstract : Two junior homonyms were detected amongst the Tachinidae and the following replacement names are proposed: Mesnilius for Paragonia Mesnil, 1950 and Aldrichomyia for Menetus Aldrich, 1926. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the type species currently included in monotypic genera Paragonia Mesnil, 1950 and Menetus Aldrich, 1926.
