Nomenclatural notes on tenebrionid beetles of the Palaearctic Region (Insecta: Coleoptera)
This paper deals with nomenclatural problems in family-group and genus-group names in Palaearctic Tenebrionidae. Triboliini, Amarygmini and Mycetocharina were first made available in Faunula monacensis cantharologica (Gistel, 1848). Neopachypterina nomen novum is proposed as a replacement name for Pachypterina Medvedev, 1968 which is based on a junior homonym. The type genus of this subtribe is Neopachypterus nomen novum (replacement name for Pachypterus Lucas, 1846, not Swainson, 1839: Pisces). The available name Imatismus Dejean, 1834 is given priority over Himatismus Erichson, 1843 and Curimosphena Gebien, 1920. A list of new combinations for Imatismus is given. References are given to preserve the usage of Erodiini Bilberg, 1820, Epitragini Blanchard, 1845, Adesmiini Lacordaire, 1859, Metaclisa Jacquelin du Val, 1861 and Pachyscelis Solier, 1836 which are threatened by recently discovered older names.
