While curating scarab beetles in the University of Nebraska State Museum collection, we discovered two generic names that are homonyms. As this renders these names invalid, we herein propose replacement names for the junior homonyms as follows.
Erwiniana Paulsen and Smith new genus
Ablotemus Paulsen and Smith new genus
