Three replacement names for species of the subfamily Leiinae (Diptera, Mycetophilidae)

Três novos nomes para espécies da subfamília Leiinae (Diptera, Mycetophilidae)

New names are proposed for three cases of homonymy in the Mycetophilidae subfamily Leiinae, one in the genus Docosia Winnerz, one in Leia Meigen, and one in Tetragoneura Winnertz. Docosia garretti nom. nov. is proposed for Docosia setosa Garrett, 1925; Leia walkeri nom. nov. for Leia bimaculata (Walker, 1848); and Tetragoneura sasakawai nom. nov. for Tetragoneura tibialis Sasakawa, 1961. The context of each new name is discussed.
