A nomenclatural act for caddis flies (Trichoptera)

Abstract :

Two junior homonyms were detected among the genus group names of Trichoptera and the following replacement names are proposed: Fusuna nom. nov. for Adelomyia Ulmer, 1912 and Ochrotrichia (Angrisanoia) nom. nov. for Ochrotrichia (Paratrichia) Angrisano, 1995. Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names respectively: Fusuna exularis (Ulmer, 1912) comb. nov. and Ochrotrichia (Angrisanoia) cebollati Angrisano, 1995 comb. nov.
