Taphioporus gen. n. with the type species T. balticus sp. n. and the new species, Colaspoides eocenicus sp. n., from Baltic amber are described. The distinctness of the new genus makes the former definitions of the tribes Euryopini Lefèvre, 1885 and Typophorini Baly, 1865 problematic because the presence or absence of the preapical emargination on the meso- and metatibiae is the only distinguishing character.
