Th e synonymy of Taeniomastix Enderlein, 1942, syn. n. (type species: Taeniomastix sumatrana Enderlein, 1942) and Eupyrgota Coquillett. 1898 is established. The subgeneric rank of Taeniomastix is proposed; the subgenus corresponds the spinifemur group of species sensu Korneyev (2006), with minor additions to its diagnosis. Four species from the Oriental (and partly Palaearctic), and two from Afrotropical Regions are included: E. formosana (Hennig, 1938), comb. n. (Apyrgota formosana), E. griseipennis (Hendel, 1933), comb. n. (Adapsilia griseipennis) (= Taeniomastix sumatrana Enderlein, 1942, syn. n.), E. pictiventris (Hendel, 1914) (Apyrgota) (= Adapsilia facialis Hendel, 1933, syn. n., = E. tigrina Kim et Han, 2000 syn. n.), E. saegeri (Vanschuytbroeck, 1963); E. spinifemur (Hendel, 1934), and E. unicolor (Hendel, 1914), comb. n. (Apyrgota spinifemur); illustrated diagnoses of the transferred species are given. Keys to subgenera of Eupyrgota and species of the subgenus Taeniomastix are provided.
