Abstract

Nineteen nomenclatural problems affecting species group names of the world's Satyrinae are presented and discussed herein. The following replacement names are proposed (replaced name within parentheses): Elymnias esaca tateishii (E. e. lautensis Tateishi), E. hypermnestra uemurai (E. nigrescens meliophila Fruhstorfer), Lethe confusa kalisi (L. rohria borneensis Kalis), L. sinorix xironis (L. s. obscura Mell), Oeneis buddha pelhami (O. b. pygmea Gross), Pharneuptychia haywardiana (Euptychia phares boliviana Hayward), and Ypthima taiwana (Y. methora formosana Fruhstorfer). Bicyclus denina (Godart, [1824] is a new combination, and Mycalesis safitza Westwood, 1850 is a new synonym of B. denina. The specific status of Melanargia nemausiaca (Esper, 1789), and Quilaphoetosus limonias (Philippi, 1859), is reinstated, the latter being a new combination. Resolution of nomenclatural problems in five of the cases will require the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to use its plenary power.
