SHELLEY, A. J.; DIAS, A. P. A Luna e MAIA-HERZOG, M.. New specific synonymy in Neotropical Simulium S. L. (Diptera: Simuliidae). Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1984, vol.79, n.2, pp. 143-161. ISSN 1678-8060. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02761984000200001.
In an attempt to clarify the taxonomy of Neotropical Simuliidae prior to the production of keys to species, various nomenclatural problems are resolved. Information is given on the status of types, their depositories, the condition of type-material where relevant, and on already established synonyms. fifteen new synonyms are established and six lectotypes designated based on an examination of type-material and long series of reared specimens from many localities to take account of intraspecific variation.
