cuprea Macquart, 1835  , Chortophila 

Chortophila cuprea Macquart, 1835: 324  . Unjustified replacement name for Nerina cinerea Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830  .

MATERIAL. — As this is a replacement name, Robineau-Desvoidy’s types of cinerea  are also the types of cuprea  . Robineau-Desvoidy’s collection is largely destroyed, and his types of cinerea  no longer exist ( Evenhuis et al. 2010: 233).

CURRENT IDENTITY. — The name cinerea  (and cuprea  ) is listed as an unrecognized species of Anthomyiidae  by Bezzi & Stein (1907: 714), Hennig (1976: 921) and Dely-Draskovits (1993: 99). It seems to me, however, that cinerea  , like the following two species described by Robineau-Desvoidy (albipennis and flavescens), is the same as Adia cinerella (Fallén, 1825)  , and I herewith formally synonymize the names Nerina cinerea  and Chortophila cuprea  with Adia cinerella (Fallén, 1825)  (n. syn.).
