Conostigmus lucidus   Mikό and Trietsch 2016

While reviewing the literature for this study, we came across a mistake we would like to correct here. Mikό et. al (2016) included the description of a new Malagasy species named Conostigmus lucidus   Mikό and Trietsch, 2016. This species name was derived from the Latin lucidus   , meaning “shining”, referring to the shining appearance of the cuticle. However, this species name is a junior homonym, as the name is already preoccupied by Conostigmus lucidus Kieffer, 1907   . These are two different distinct and valid species. To remedy this situation, we offer the replacement name Conostigmus fulgidus   Mikό and Trietsch as a nomen novum for Conostigmus lucidus   Mikό and Trietsch, 2016. This name is derived from the Latin fulgidus   , which has a similar meaning to the word lucidus   and also references the shining appearance of the cuticle.
