New substitute names for two Ennominae genera (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)

Abstract :

Two junior homonyms were detected amongst the Lepidoptera and the following replacement names are proposed: Begumia for Lobus Fletcher, 1979 and Eliphia for Moneta Warren, 1906 (Geometridae: Ennominae). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for all type species currently included in monotypic genera Lobus Fletcher, 1979 and Moneta Warren, 1906.
