Abstract

The generic name Nosoderma was first validated by Guérin-Méneville 1838 (type species Nosoderma echinatum Guérin-Méneville by monotypy) not Solier 1841. This correction results in significant changes to the nomenclature of the Zopherini. Meralius Casey 1907 is synonymized with Nosoderma Guérin-Méneville 1838, new synonymy. Verodes Casey 1907, new status, new sense, [type species Verodes aequalis (Champion) by original designation] is proposed as the replacement name for Nosoderma Solier not Guérin-Méneville. These changes result in the 24 following new combinations: Nosoderma turquinense (Garrido) and Nosoderma montanum (Garrido), and Verodes inaequalis (Say), V. championi (Casey), V. insignis (Champion), V. interruptus (Champion), V. scabrosus (Solier), V. asperatus (Champion), V. prominens (Casey), V. senex (Casey), V. exsculptus (Champion), V. carinatus (Champion), V. subglabrus (Casey), V. anceps (Champion), V. impressus (Champion), V. longipennis (Casey), V. brevicollis (Casey), V. denticulatus (Solier), V. lutosus (Champion), V. venustus (Champion), V. zunilensis (Champion), V. guatemalensis (Champion), V. squalidus (Casey), and V. sparsus (Champion).
