New names for two preoccupied centipede genera (Chilopoda)

Abstract : Two junior homonyms were detected among the centipede genera and the following replacement names are proposed: Chileana nom. nov. pro Araucania Chamberlin, 1956 (non Pate, 1947) and Paralamyctes (Edgecombegdus) nom. nov. pro Paralamyctes (Nothofagobius) Edgecombe, 2001 (non Kuschel, 1952). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genera respectively: Chileana araucanensis (Sylvestri, 1899) comb. nov.; Paralamyctes (Edgecombegdus) cassisi Edgecombe, 2001 comb. nov. and Paralamyctes (Edgecombegdus) mesibovi Edgecombe, 2001 comb. nov..
