Substitute names for two preoccupied moth genera names described by J. F. G. Clarke from Chile (Lepidoptera: Oecophoridae)

Abstract :

Two junior homonym genus group names were detected among the moth genus group names. All names were described by J. F. G. Clarke from Chile. So, the following replacement names are herein proposed: Nagehana nom. nov. for Retha Clarke, 1978 and Hozbeka nom. nov. for Talitha Clarke, 1978. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names. Nagehana rustica (Clarke, 1978) comb. nov. and Hozbeka anomala (Clarke, 1978) comb. nov..
