Abstract: Based upon the study of the type specimens, Conosimus goricus Dlabo- la, 1958 is placed in synonymy under Conosimus caucasicus Melichar, 1914. Mycterodus (Aconosimus) caucasicus (Melichar, 1914) comb. nov. is rejected as a junior secondary homonym of Mycterodus (Comporodus) caucasicus (Melichar, 1906) (originally described in Issus Fabricius, 1803) and Mycterodus (Aconosimus) goricus (Dlabola, 1958) is proposed as the valid replacement name. The lectotype is designated for Conosimus caucasicus Melichar, 1914. The corrected authorship of the genus-group name is Aconosimus Dlabola, 1987.
