PY-DANIEL, Victor. Simulium new synonymies and corrections, with resurrection of Simulium pruinosum Lutz, 1904 (Diptera, Culicomorpha, Simuliidae). Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1989, vol.23, n.3, pp.254-257. ISSN 1518-8787.

The following synonyms are proposed: Simulium antunesi (Lane & Porto, 1940), Simulium mauense Nunes de Mello, 1974 and Simulium nilesi Rambajam, 1979 are synonyms of Simulium perflavum Roubaud, 1906; Simulium sucamense Nunes de Mello, 1974 and Simulium santaelenae Ramirez-Perez & Peterson, 1981 are synonyms of Simulium (Psilopelmia) iracouboense Floch & Abonnenc, 1946; Simulium major Lane & Porto, 1940 are synonym of Simulium (Hemicnetha) rubrithorax Lutz, 1909. The recent use of the miswriting name Grenierella to the subgenus Grenieriella Vargas & Nájera, 1951 is mentioned. Simulium (Grenieriella) pruinosum Lutz, 1910 is revalidated and Simulium nigrimanum Macquart, 1838 should be considered species inquirendae.

Keywords : Simuliidae [classification].
