Is monogenic inheritance the same thing as monohybrid inheritance?

Both have the phenotypic ration in the F2 generation of 3:1 of dominant to recessive.
When I was learning about autosomal linkage it said "the phenotypic ration on the F2 generation of a dihybrid cross of autosomally linked two genes won't be the expected 9:3:3:1 ration but is more likely to be the phenotypic ration expected for the F2 generation of a MONOHYBRID cross(3:1)" because the two autosomally linked alleles are inherited together.
In this context is monohybrid cross the same thing as monogenic cross?
Thank you so much!

yes they are both the same. 'mono' essentially tells you that only one gene will be involved.
