Por (1964a: 115) synonymised the monotypic genera Hemimesochra Sars, 1920b (type species: Hemimesochra clavularis Sars, 1920b) and Mesopsyllus Por, 1960b (type species: Mesopsyllus atargatis Por, 1960b) and added a third species, Hemimesochra derketo Por, 1964a. Lang (1965: 423) dismissed this course of action by resurrecting Mesopsyllus for M. atargatis, restricting Hemimesochra to H. clavularis and fixing H. derketo as the type and only species of a new genus Poria Lang, 1965. All three genera were removed from the Cletodidae by Por (1986a) and placed in a new subfamily Hemimesochrinae in the Canthocamptidae. Poria Lang, 1965 cannot be maintained as a valid name since it is a junior homonym of Poria Mulsant, 1850 (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). Mulsant (1850: 885) included eight species in Poria but refrained from type fixation. Crotch (1874) subsequently listed Poria cyanea Mulsant, 1850 as the type species. The senior homonym Poria Mulsant, 1850 is still a valid name that is widely used in the coccinellid literature (e.g. Fürsch 1990; Lawrence & Newton 1995). Here the new replacement name Hanikraia nom. nov. (gender: feminine), alluding to the location of the type locality (Israel; Eastern Mediterranean; off Rosh Hanikra) is substituted for Poria Lang, 1965, containing Hanikraia derketo (Por, 1964a) comb. nov. as its type and only valid species. Huys and Thistle (1989) suggested that the species identified as “Cletodidae sp. indet.” by Wells (1965a) also belongs to Poria, but Bodin (1997) considered it to be an unidentifiable juvenile specimen. In accordance with Wells’s (2007) checklist it is here regarded as species incertae sedis in Hanikraia pending the re-examination of additional material. [details]
