PATATRA Soula, 2008

Patatra Soula 2008: 40

= Patatra Soula 2009: 129 - Moore and Jameson 2013: 380 (syn. nov.)

Note. The monotypic genus Patatra and its nominal species P. mathani are described by Soula (2008: 40). In Soula (2009: 129) the genus and species are verbatim redescribed under the same names, thus creating homonyms. An attempt is made by Moore and Jameson (2013: 380) to correct this, by renaming Patatra Soula, 2009 as Neopatatra and synonymizing this name with Patatra Soula, 2008 . The same is done with the species P. mathani Soula, 2009 (p. 129), where the species is renamed P. synonyma and synonymized with P. mathani Soula, 2008 . However, both the generic name Neopatatra and the specific name P. synonyma are unavailable and invalid as they are not used as valid names in the describing publication. This is explained and rectified in Moore et al. (2017: 156).
