The asopine Podisus gaumeri Distant, 1889 is removed from the synonymy with Tyrannocoris jole (Stål, 1862) and transferred to the genus Tylospilus Stål, 1870. This decision is based on the examination of type specimens of several species of Tyrannocoris Thomas, 1992 and Tylospilus. Tylospilus gaumeri comb.n. et stat.rev. has the lateral margins of the pronotum sinuous, and the ostiolar peritreme reaches less than half of the metapleural width, which is in accordance with the generic characteristics of Tylospilus. On the other hand, Tyrannocoris is characterized by the lateral margins of the pronotum almost rectilinear and smooth, and the ostiolar peritreme reaches two-thirds of the metapleural width.
