SUBSTITUTE NAMES FOR TWO PREOCCUPIED LONGHORNED BEETLES GENUS GROUP NAMES DESCRIBED BY J. THOMSON (COLEOPTERA: CERAMBYCIDAE)

Abstract : Two junior homonym genus group names were detected among the longhorned beetle genus group names. All names were described by J. Thomson. So, the following replacement names are herein proposed: Zehra nom. nov. for Sibylla Thomson, 1857 and Leptocometes Bates, 1881 for Tithonus Thomson, 1864. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names. Zehra coemeterii (Thomson, 1856) comb. nov.; Zehra flavosignata (Fairmaire & Germain, 1859) comb. nov.; Zehra integra (Fairmaire & Germain, 1859) comb. nov.; Zehra krahmeri (Cerda, 1973) comb. nov.; Zehra livida (Germain, 19oo) comb. nov. from Sibylla Thomson, 1857 and from Tithonus Thomson, 1864 and Leptocometes acutispinis (Bates, 1863) comb. nov.; Leptocometes barbiscapus (Bates, 1872) comb. nov.; Leptocometes luneli (Chalumeau & Touroult, 2005) comb. nov.; Leptocometes nubilus (Melzer, 1934) comb. nov.; Leptocometes obscurus (Monné, 1990) comb. nov.; Leptocometes pallidus (Melzer, 1934) comb. nov.; Leptocometes penicillatus (Monné, 1990) comb. nov.; Leptocometes spitzi (Melzer, 1934) comb. nov.; Leptocometes umbrosus (Thomson, 1864) comb. nov.; Leptocometes umbrosus (Thomson, 1864) comb. nov.; Leptocometes virescens (Melzer, 1931) comb. nov.; Leptocometes volxemi (Lameere, 1884) comb. nov. and Leptocometes zikani (Martins & Monné, 1974) comb. nov. from Tithonus Thomson, 1864.
