The type species are designated for the following genus-group names: Halonomus Wollaston, 1861 (Halonomus grayii Wollaston, 1861 = Opatrum ovatus Erichson, 1843), Heliocrates Reitter, 1904 (Heliophilus humerangulus Reitter, 1904), Heterophylus Mulsant et Rey, 1859 (Helipathes picipes Faldermann, 1837), Opatronesthes Reitter, 1904 (Melanesthes punctipennis Reitter, 1889), Penthomegus Reitter, 1904 (Penthicus corpulentus Reitter, 1896), Sclerum Dejean, 1834 (Opatrum orientale Fabricius, 1775) and Stonavus Reitter, 1904 (Penthicus alaiensis Reitter, 1896). Penthicus pinguis medvedevi nomen novum is proposed as a replacement name for Lobodera granulifera G. S. Medvedev, 1964 (not Reichardt, 1936) which is presently placed in Penthicus as junior homonym, and Barnardiorum nomen novum for Tadzhikistania Barnard et Barnard, 1983 (not Bogatchev, 1960). Statements and corrections are given on previous nomenclatorial acts concerning the following names: Bogatshevia G. S. Medvedev et Iwan, 2006, Ochrolamus Reitter, 1904 and Reichardtiellina Kaszab, 1982. A new synonymy is proposed: Hopatrum hadroide Fairmaire, 1888 = Gonocephalum reichardti Gebien, 1939. Reference are given to preserve the usage of Opatrum rusticum A. G. Olivier, 1811 and Opatrum perplexum Lucas, 1846 which are threatened by recently noticed senior homonyms.
