New replacement names are proposed for three junior primary homonyms that cannot be maintained under the current rules of zoological nomenclature. The substitute names are Paraphaenocladius evenhuisi nom. nov. for P. pusillus Seredszus & Wichard, 2007 (preoccupied by P. pusillus Sæther & Wang, 1995); Chironomus vallenduuki nom. nov. for C. uliginosus Keyl, 1960 (nec C. uliginosus Meunier, 1904), and Polypedilum moubayedbreili nom. nov. for P. elongatum Albu, 1980 (nec P. elongatum Tokunaga, 1964). © 2014, Verlag dr Friedrich Pfeil.

Diagnoses and descriptions of the adults and pupal exuviae of Stygocladius multisetosus gen. nov., sp. nov., are provided based primarily on male and female pharates collected in temporary basaltic and karstic helocrenes in southern France and Algeria. Features on the adult male, female and pupa indicates that it belongs to the Heterotrissocladius group of genera and is probably most closely related to Paratrissocladius Zavřel. The immature stages of the new species are stygobiontic.

The description of Rheotanytarsus dactylophoreus sp. nov. is based on adult males, pharate males and pupal exuviae collected in low and middle mountain streams located in the Eastern Pyrenees and Corsica is presented. The most distinctive character in the adult male is the unusually long, finger-like, digitus and in the pupal exuviae is the thoracic horn which is spinulate laterally (extending from swollen base into tapered apical half). The distribution of R. dactylophoreus sp. nov. indicates that this pyreneocorsican species is a Tyrrhenian faunal element which spread westwards to mountain streams of the Eastern Pyrenees perhaps during the repeated waves of migration from the Paleocene (Montian) till the late Miocene.

An update of the more significant changes affecting Part 1 of 'A World Catalogue of Chironomidae (Diptera)' is provided. These concern new taxon names, new combinations and new synonymies that were proposed, as well as omissions and errors detected, since the publication of the Catalogue at the end of 2009.
