Säwedal (1982) proposed Tanytarsus bernhardi as a new name for T. longitarsis sensu Lindeberg, not Kieffer, 1911. I still think my identification is correct, although the types seen by Säwedal were Micropsectra junci. The original description clearly refers to a Tanytarsus, not a Micropsectra. No homonymy has been created by Lindeberg (1967) and therefore T. bernhardi is a nomen nudum. A brief comparison with some other species is given.
