Grandopronotalia smithi (Horn, 1936)



Prothyma (Grandopronotalia) smithi Horn, 1936 - original combination

  • Cicindela carnarvona Freitag, 1979 (replacement for secondary homonym of Cicindela smithi Sloane, 1913, now Rivacindela smithi (Sloane, 1913))
  • NOTE: Freitag's replacement name is invalid following ICZN Article 59.4 - "A species-group name rejected after 1960 on grounds of secondary homonymy is to be reinstated as valid by an author who considers that the two species-group taxa in question are not congeneric, unless it is invalid for some other reason."
