Abstract

Three junior homonyms were detected among the Arachnida and the following replacement names are proposed: Neoarminda for Arminda Roewer 1949 (Opiliones); Alpazia for Lapazia Roewer 1949 (Opiliones); and Araneotanna for Tanna Berland 1938 (Araneae). Accordingly, three new combinations are herein proposed for the respective type species. All three genera are monotypic.
