Haywardinia Cobos, 1964


Haywardinia Cobos, 1964  

Muona (1987, 1993) listed “ Haywardinia Cobos, 1964   ; not Aczél, 1952” under a belief that Haywardinia sensu Cobos (1964)   is pre-occupied by Aczél (1952). Further research has indicated Aczél (1951) actually described the group Haywardina   ( Insecta  : Diptera   : Tephritoidea: Tephritidae   ) from South America. These two names differ only by a single letter. As a result, no further action to replace Haywardinia   is needed, in which the eucnemid genus is still valid.
