OZDIKMEN, Hüseyin  and  BAşAR, Kadir. A new name for the Neotropical genus Aniarella Enderlein (Diptera, Sciaridae). Rev. Bras. entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.55, n.1, pp.15-16. ISSN 0085-5626.

A new name for the Neotropical genus Aniarella Enderlein (Diptera, Sciaridae). A junior homonym was detected among neotropical sciarid flies genera and the following replacement name is proposed: Novaniarella nom. nov. for Aniarella Enderlein, 1911 (nec Bolivar, 1906). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in this genus: Novaniarella azteca (Lane, 1959) comb. nov., Novaniarella brevis (Rubsaamen, 1894) comb. nov. and Novaniarella pelluscens (Enderlein, 1911) comb. nov.

Keywords : Homonymy; new combinations; nomenclatural changes; replacement name; Sciaridae.
