Abd-Rabou and Evans (2002) described Eretmocerus aegypticus Evans and Abd-Rabou and Eretmocerus parasiphonini Evans and Abd-Rabou. According to Article 16.4 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) (1999), for a name to be available, the author(s) of papers published after 1999, must accompany the description with a statement of intent as to where the primary type is deposited or to be deposited. Since the authors inadvertently did not state where the primary type for each species was to be deposited, the names of both of these species have been unavailable. To rectify this situation and comply with the requirements of the ICNZ, we wish to state that the holotype of Eretmocerus aegypticus Evans and Abd-Rabou and Eretmocerus parasiphonini Evans and Abd-Rabou are deposited in the United States Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC, USA. We thank Dr. John Noyes, for bringing this error to our attention.
