New nomenclatural changes in the genus Otites Latreille, 1804 (Diptera: Ulidiidae: Otitinae)

Kameneva, E.P.; Korneyev, V. A.

For the purpose of clarifying the taxonomic status of the type species of the genus Otites, a single specimen is designated as the neotype of both Musca porcus Latreille, 1804 and Blainvillia jucunda Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830, syn.n.  Otites ruficeps (Fabricius, 1805) is proposed as replacement name for Musca formosa Panzer, 1798 (preoccupied, non Musca formosa Scopoli, 1763), since the other junior synonyms, Dictya gangraenosa sensu Fabricius, 1805 (misidentification; non Musca gangraenosa Panzer, 1798) and Otites elegans Latreille, 1805 (proposed in synonymy with Musca formosa Panzer, 1798) are unavailable. Based on the study of its type specimen, Otites ornata (Meigen, 1826) (= Ortalis ornata Meigen, 1826) is shown to be the valid name for Otites bacescui Gheorghiu, 1987, syn.n.
