Michotamia subnigra   nom. n.

Michotamia nigra   Scarbrough and Hill, 2000: 357. Type locality: Sri Lanka: Kan.: Kandy: Udawattakele Sancturay (7°17'55.96"N, 80°38'32.65"E). [preoccupied by Michotamia nigra   (Meijere, 1911: 312 (Java).]

Note.

Scarbrough and Hill (2000) described Michotamia nigra   from Sri Lanka. Unfortunately they failed to note that the binomen Michotamia nigra   (Meijere, 1911) had been used earlier for a species from Java. We propose Michotamia subnigra   as a replacement name for Michotamia nigra   Scarbrough and Hill.
