Nantis nom.nov. - substitute for preoccupied Nans

new generic name:

Nantis Mirande, Aguilera & Azpelicueta, 2006
new combination:
Nantis indefessus (Mirande, Aguilera & Azpelicueta, 2004)

remarks (from publication):
Nans indefessus Mirande, Aguilera & Azpelicueta, 2004 was described as a new genus and species from the upper Río Bermejo basin, Northwestern Argentina. According to Naeve (1940) the generic name Nans is preoccupied by an annelid (Chamberlin, 1919: 125). In order to clear this homonymy we propose Nantis nom. nov. as a new substitute name for the genus Nans Mirande, Aguilera & Azpelicueta, 2004.
