New names for two gall midges genera (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae)

Abstract : Two genus group names in Cecidomyiidae were detected as nomenclaturally invalid and the following replacement names are proposed: Novocalmonia nom. nov. for Calmonia Tavares, 1917 and Pritchardaea nom. nov. for Pararete Pritchard, 1951. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names.Novocalmonia fici (Gagne, 1994); Novocalmonia urostigmata (Tavares, 1917) and Pritchardaea elongata (Felt, 1908).
