Abstract: The names of Dichaetomyia suffusa van Emden, 1942 and Phaonia capensis Zielke, 1971 are occupied by Dichaetomyia suffusa Malloch, 1929 and Phaonia capensis Curran, 1938, respectively. Therefore the replacement name Dichaetomyia adamskae nom. nov. is given to Dichaetomyia suffusa van Emden, 1942, and Phaonia necapensis nom. nov. to Dichaetomyia capensis Zielke, 1971. The differences between the two species Phaonia necapensis and Phaonia brunneivittis Emden, 1943 are described documenting that Phaonia necapensis is a good species, clearly distinct from P. brunneivittis.

Keywords: Dichaetomyia adamskae nom. nov., Phaonia necapensis nom. nov., reactivation, replacement names
