Tainarys  sp., undescribed from Dominican amber, Burckhardt & Lauterer 1989: 657. † Uicinilura reposta Klimaszewski, 1996: 26  .

Leurolophus reposta  [sic!], Burckhardt & Ouvrard, 2012: 24.

Material examined. Dominican Republic: Holotype ♂ ( AMNH)  . Other material: 1 ♂ ( MHNG)  .

Description of adult by Klimaszewski (1997); habitus of female figured by Schlee (1980).

Fifth instar immature unknown.

Distribution. Dominican Republic (Klimaszewski 1997).

Host plant unknown.

Comments. Klimaszewski (1997) described † Vicinilura reposta  from a single male from Dominican amber. He suggested that Vicinilura  resembles Euphyllura Foerster  , though not specifying how, and Ligustrinia Loginova  in the head morphology. In the description, Klimaszewski (1996) mentions the lack of a meracanthus on the metacoxa. His description and drawing of the forewing suggest that there is no costal break developed. Based on the absence of a meracanthus and a costal break in the forewing, Burckhardt & Ouvrard (2012) synonymised † Vicinilura  with Leurolophus  and transferred † V. reposta  to the latter. The examination of the holotype confirmed that the species belongs to the Rhinocolinae  but showed that a costal break is present. For this reason, we transfer the species to Tainarys  as † Tainarys reposta (Klimaszewski, 1997)  , comb. nov.
