RESUMO

Navia nom. nov.

Euterpia Navia & Flechtmann, 2005 [type-species: Euterpia fissa Navia & Flechtmann, 2005, by original designation (Navia & Flechtmann 2005: 42)], nec Euterpia Bondar, 1942 [(type-species: Euterpia rufa Bondar, 1942, by original designation (Bondar 1942: 25)].

Navia & Flechtmann (2005) described the genus Euterpia (Prostigmata: Eriophyoidea: Eriphyidae: Phyllocoptinae: Phyllocoptini) for one species (E. fissa Navia & Flechtmann 2005) of Neotropical Eriophyoid mites.

However, this name is preoccupied by Euterpia Bondar, 1942, a genus of Curculionidae (Insecta: Coleoptera). Guenée (in Boisduval & Guenée 1852) had already used Euterpia in 1852 as a lapsus calami for Enterpia Guenée, 1850 (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia: Noctuoidea: Noctuidae: Hadeninae). Therefore, Navia nom. nov. is here proposed to replace Euterpia Navia & Flechtmann 2005. The nominal genus is in honor to the acarologist Denise Navia. As a result, the following new combination is introduced: Navia fissa (Navia & Flechtmann, 2005) comb. nov.
