Paraidya Sewell, 1940 (Family Tisbidae)
Sewell (1940: 163) established the genus Paraidya Sewell, 1940 in the Tisbidae for two new species, Paraidya major Sewell, 1940 and P. minor Sewell, 1940. Since the publication of Paraidya was not accompanied by the mandatory type fixation, the generic name does not satisfy the provisions of ICZN Art. 13.3 and must therefore be considered unavailable. Vervoort (1964: 103) listed the type species for each genus then regarded valid in the Tisbidae. Unfortunately he did not do so for Paraidya since he claimed that the taxon fell within the boundaries of the genus Tisbe Lilljeborg, 1853 as redefined by Lang (1948: 364). This view gained support from Lang (1965: 145) who formally relegated Paraidya to a junior subjective synonym of Tisbe. Humes and Ho (1969b: 128) disputed this course of action and reinstated the genus for the two originally included species and a new species P. occulta Humes & Ho, 1969b but refrained from subsequent type designation. Finally, Humes (1981a) redescribed both P. major and P. minor but did not make the genus- group name available either. In the absence of any available synonyms that could potentially substitute for Paraidya Sewell, 1940 [nomen nudum], the generic name is validated here by fixing Paraidya major Sewell, 1940 as the type species (ICZN Art. 13.3) and by making explicit reference to Humes and Ho’s (1969b: 128) list of characters that differentiate Paraidya gen. nov. from the closely related genus Tisbe (ICZN Art. 13.1.2). Paraidya gen. nov. includes the following new combinations: Paraidya major Sewell, 1940 = Paraidya major (Sewell, 1940) comb. nov.; P. minor Sewell, 1940 = P. minor (Sewell, 1940) comb. nov.; and P. occulta Humes & Ho, 1969b = P. occulta (Humes & Ho, 1969b) comb. nov. [details]
