Eight junior homonyms that were described by hymenopterologist Z. Boucek were found among the hymenopteran genus group names. Thus, the following replacement names are proposed as follows: In Pteromalidae: Pteromalinae; Neobabina nom. nov. for Babina Boucek, 1993 (nec Thompson, 1912), Austrobriania nom. nov. for Briania Boucek, 1988 (nec Chasen & Kloss, 1930), Noyesiella nom. nov. for Duartea Boucek, 1993 (nec Mendes, 1959), and Neocairnsia nom. nov. for Cairnsia Boucek, 1988 (nec Blackburn, 1895); in Pteromalidae: Ormocerinae; Boucekocerna nom. nov. for Cerna Boucek, 1988 (nec Klimaszewski, 1974) and Neoedgaria nom. nov. for Edgaria Boucek, 1988 (nec Klimaszewski, 1974); in Pteromalidae: Miscogasterinae; Neosusteraia nom. nov. for Susteraia Boucek, 1972 (nec Bechyne, 1950), and; in Agaonidae: Sycoryctinae; Hymenotenka nom. nov. for Tenka Boucek, 1988 (nec Barrande, 1881). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genus group names, respectively: Neobabina gracilis (Boucek, 1993) comb. nov. from Babina gracilis Boucek, 1993; Austrobriania kukensis (Boucek, 1988) comb. nov. from Briania kukensis Boucek, 1988; Noyesiella daphne (Girault, 1917) comb. nov. from Duartea daphne (Girault, 1917); Neocairnsia stylifera (Boucek, 1988) comb. nov. from Cairnsia stylifera Boucek, 1988; Boucekocerna kohouti (Boucek, 1988) comb. nov. from Cerna kohouti Boucek, 1988; Neoedgaria blackburni (Girault, 1928) comb. nov. from Edgaria blackburni (Girault, 1928); Neosusteraia acerina (Boucek, 1972) comb. nov. from Susteraia acerina (Boucek, 1972) and Hymenotenka percaudata (Boucek, 1988) comb. nov. from Tenka percaudata Boucek, 1988.
