The generic names Tenera Omelko, Opacochroa Omelko, Iridesna Omelko, and Stenoalata Omelko firstly were published in paper Omelko, 1998, "Novye i interesnye rody i vidy vyemchatokrylyh molei iz podsemeistva Metzneriinae (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae) iz Primor'ya" [New interesting genera and species of Gelechiid moths from subfamily Metzneriinae (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae) from Primorskii krai], in Biologicheskie issledovaniya na Gornotaezhnoi stantsii [Biological investigations on the Gornotaezhnaya station], collected articles, N 4, P. 221-235. There are several infringements of Code's recommendations and taxonomic mistakes. In papers generic descriptions are absent, only specific descriptions are given. In it's diagnosis for some of enumerated taxa (Tenera, Stenoalata, Sinevia) only charakters of similarity with other representatives of subfamily are given. Besides that, Sinevia is homonym of Sinevia Kerzhner, 1988: 791, in Hemiptera, Miridae. The Opacochroa based on the misidentified species. Aristotelia ferrea Frey, 1870 is not distributed on the Far East (not found to present time). The description was done on the base of Daltopora sinanensis Sakamaki, 1995 (Jpn. J. Ent., 63 (1): 216-219). I am preparing the manuscript of small paper on Omelko's Opacochroa to magazine "Entomologica Fennica" (pers. comm. to Klaus Sattler from Margarita Ponomarenko).
