Genus Descampsiella   nom. nov.

Perinetella Descamps & Wintrebert, 1965   . Mém. Mus. natn. Hist. nat. Paris (N.S.) (A) 34: 96. (Insecta: Othoptera: Cae-

lifera: Eumastacoidea: Euschmidtiidae   : Pseudoschmidtiinae: Spaerophallini). Preoccupied by Perinetella Synave   ,

1956. Mém. Inst. scient. Madagascar (E) 7: 211. (Insecta: Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Flatidae).

Remarks on nomenclatural change: Descamps (1964) described genus Perinetia   with the type species Perinetia annulipes Descamps, 1964   in Orthoptera   . This genus name was occupied. So Descamps & Wintrebert (1965) proposed the name Perinetella   as an objective replacement name for Perinetia Descamps, 1964   . It is still used as a valid generic name. Unfortunately, the generic name was already preoccupied by Synave (1956), who erected the bug genus Perinetella   with the type species Perinetella nigroflava Synave, 1956   in Hemiptera   . It is still used as a valid genus name in the family Flatidae   (e.g. Bisby et al., 2007). Thus, the genus group name Perinetella Descamps & Wintrebert, 1965   ( Orthoptera   ) is invalid under the rule of homonymy, being a junior homonym of Perinetella Synave, 1956   ( Hemiptera   ). Under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature ( ICZN 1999) it must be rejected and replaced. The genus Perinetella Descamps & Wintrebert, 1965   does not have a synonym except the preoccupied Perinetia Descamps, 1964   . So I propose Descampsiella   nom. nov. as a replacement name for Perinetella Descamps & Wintrebert, 1965   .

Etymology: The genus is named after the first author of Perinetella, M. Descamps.  

Summary of nomenclatural changes: Descampsiella   nom. nov. pro Perinetella Descamps & Wintrebert, 1965   (non Synave, 1956); Descampsiella annulipes ( Descamps, 1964)   comb. nov. from Perinetella annulipes ( Descamps, 1964)   = Perinetia annulipes Descamps, 1964   (distribution: Africa, Western Indian Ocean, Madagascar, East, Peninet).
