Diabrotica neotropica Clark and Anderson   , replacement name

Triarius tropicus Weise 1921: 85  

Diabrotica tropicus: Smith and Lawrence 1967: 135   (not Diabrotica tropica Weise, 1916   )

This Brazilian species was originally named Triarius tropicus Weise, 1921   . Later, Smith and Lawrence (1967) transferred it to the genus Diabrotica   . However, in so doing, they created a secondary homonym with Diabrotica tropica Weise, 1916   . The fact that the 1916 species is now placed in Paratriarius Schaeffer   does not diminish the homonymy, as the original combination was in Diabrotica   . We here propose Diabrotica neotropica   as a replacement name for Triarius tropicus Weise, 1921   .
