I think Laurin and Reisz introduced the name Eureptilia (see Arizona Tree of Life which should cite the paper).
I don't recall the exact definitions of either Romeriida or Eureptilia, but at the present time I think their membership is the same (or almost so).
If turtles turn out to be diapsids, I would guess their inclusion would make either Romeriida or Eureptilia more acceptable than the other for the new clade, or perhaps someone will come up with yet another new name.

What's 'Eureptilia'? I haven't heard of that one.
