Abstract

Chironomus paulfreemani n.nom. for Ch. brunneus Freeman, 1954 (Diptera: Chironomidae) LARS SÄWEDAL Chironomus paulfreemani n.nom. is proposed as a replacement name for Chironomus brunneus Freeman, 1954 which is preoccupied by Chironomus brunneus Walker, 1848. L. Säwedal, Dept. of Systematic Zoology, Univ. of Lund, Helgonavägen 3, S-223 62 Lund, Sweden. While working with a revision of the genus Micropsectra Kieffer, 1909 I discovered that the name Chironnrnus brunnetts had been used by two authors describing two separate species. Due to this homonymy it was necessary to give a new name to the species described as a junior homonym. Freeman (1954: 18) described the species Chironornus brunneus from Kirsten bosch, South Africa (1954: 18, Fig. 9b. Freeman & Cranston 1980: 187). The description was based on 1 d (holotype) and (paratypes). Un- fortunately the name brunneus is preoccupied by Chironomus brunneus Walker, 1848. The latter species was described from one (?) d collected at St. Martin's Falls, Albany River, Hudson Bay. Chironomus brunneus Walker was synonymized with Micropsectra connexa (Kieffer, 1906) by Sublette & Sublette 1965. I herewith propose the new name Chironomus pau(freemani as a re- placement name for Chironomus brunneus Freeman, 1954. Freeman, P. 1954. Chironomicae (Diptera) from West- ern Cape Province III. - Proc. R. ent. Soc. Lond. (B) 23: 17-25. � & Cranston, P. 1980. Family Chironomidae. In Crosskey, R. W.
