Substitute names for three Palaearctic fly genus group names (Diptera: Limoniidae and Dolichopodidae)

Abstract : Three junior homonyms were detected among dipter genera and the following replacement names are proposed: Neopelosia nom. nov. for Pelosia Rondani, 1856 (nec Hübner, [1819]), Hoplobasis (Novolunaria) nom. nov. for Hoplobasis (Lunaria) Savchenko, 1982 (nec Fabricius, 1823; non Gray, 1847; non Jin et al., 1979) and Sphyrotarsus (Ozmena) nom. nov. for Sphyrotarsus (Takagia) Negrobov, 1973 (nec Matsumuro, 1942; non Tang, 1984). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group: Neopelosia albifrons (Rondani, 1856) comb. nov., Hoplobasis (Novolunaria) amselina (Nielsen, 1961) comb. nov., Hoplobasis (Novolunaria) idiophallus (Savchenko, 1973) comb. nov. and Sphyrotarsus (Ozmena) stackelbergi Negrobov, 1965 comb. nov.
