Callicorini replacement name (ICZN Art. 40.2)
CatagramminiNiklas Wahlberg and Andrew V. Z. Brower
nomenclatureJ. Pelham (pers. comm.) points out that the correct name for this tribe is Callicorini Orfila, 1952, and not Catagrammini Butler , Catagrammini Guenée, 1872, or Catagrammini Burmeister, 1878. This due to (1) synonymy of the the type genera (Callicore Hübner,  is senior to Catagramma Boisduval, 1836), and (2) the prevailing usage of Callicorini prior to 1961.
