Lectotypes are designated for: Acutalis balteata Fairmaire, 1846, Aculalis binaria Fairmaire, 1846, Acutalis flavozonala Fairmaire, 1846, una Acutalis tripunctata Fairmaire, 1846. New taxonomic position: Micrutalis melanogramma (Petty, 1833) is transferred to Melu-sinella Metcalf, 1952 (Ceresini) - Melusinella melanogramma (Petty, 1833), comb.n. = Melusinella nervosa (Fairmaire, 1846), syn.n..
