Herein we provide a nomenclatural review of the world Alleculinae genus-group names. Author, year of publication, type species, and type fixation are included for each name. Five fossil genera as well as 188 extant genera and 41 subgenera are considered valid. The following new replacement names are proposed: Borchmannius Bousquet and Bouchard for GlyptothoraxBorchmann, 1937; Piccula Bousquet and Bouchard for GerardiaPic, 1954. The type species of the following genus-group names are designated: ErxiasChampion, 1888 (Erxias bicolorChampion, 1888), LobopodaSolier, 1835 (Lobopoda striataSolier, 1835), MenesChampion, 1888 (Menes meridanusChampion, 1888), PlesiaKlug, 1833 (Plesia melanuraKlug, 1833) and PleuromophlusReitter, 1906 (Omophlus baudueri Baudi, 1877). The following new synonymies are introduced: ParomophlusIablokoff-Khnzorian, 1983 (with PhibalusGistel, 1856); PleuromophlusReitter, 1906 (with OdontomophlusSeidlitz, 1896). LepturideaFauvel, 1862 is considered the valid name for AethyssiusPascoe, 1863. Three remaining nomenclatural problems (cf. Otys Champion, Prostenus Klug, and Odontomophlus Seidlitz) will require applications to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to promote stability.
