Tainarys BreÁthes  

Tainarys BreÁthes, 1920: 133   . Type species: Tainarys schini BreÁthes   , by monotypy

Tainarys   is de®ned here by the anteriorly rounded head, the short, broad frons, the forewings with costal break and surface spinules on the wing membrane in adults and the ventral anus in the larvae. Following this de®nition, a fossil species from Dominican amber which was assigned to Tainarys   by Burckhardt and Lauterer (1989) is transferred here to L eurolophus   , and L eurolophus inopinatus   to Tainarys   , respectively. The assignment of the unnamed species from Brazil (Burckhardt and Lauterer, 1989) to Tainarys   is con®rmed here; it resembles most T. inopinata   .
