status

 

Trioza monri Burckhardt  , nom. and stat. nov.

Distribution. India: Tamil Nadu ( Kandasamy 1986, as Trioza laqueus minor  ).

Host plant. Cinnamomum  sp. ( Lauraceae  ).

Comments. Trioza fletcheri minor Crawford, 1912  is a senior primary homonym of Trioza minor Tuthill, 1945  from Mexico and Panama and Trioza laqueus minor Kandasamy, 1986  from India. According to article 57.2 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature ( ICZN 1999) a junior primary homonym is invalid. We propose following replacement names: Trioza nimro Burckhardt  , nom. nov. for Trioza minor Tuthill, 1945  and Trioza monri Burckhardt  , nom. and stat. nov. for Trioza laqueus minor Kandasamy, 1986  nec Trioza fletcheri minor Crawford, 1912  . Trioza laqueus minor Kandasamy, 1986  (= T. monri Burckhardt  ) differs from T. laqueus  morphologically and in the host range, suggesting that they are two distinct species. For this reason, we raise the former to species status.
