New replacement names in craneflies (Diptera: Limoniidae, Tipulidae)

Department of Entomology, Zoological Museum, University of Amsterdam, Plantage Middenlaan 64, 1018 DH Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Craneflies Tipulidae Limoniidae Replacement names


New replacement names are given for 18 species-group names in Limoniidae and 5 species-group names in Tipulidae. Another replacement name in Limoniidae (schineriana Alexander) is reinstated. In all cases the replacement names are necessary because the senior and junior homonyms are presently congeneric.
