I sent a note to the authors of the Kinzelbachilla paper (who had not 
been CCed before as Mike Engel had), and they said they have fixed the 
ZooBank record so it now includes the archive. Accordingly, for the 
public record, if we follow the guideline as Rich suggested, all of the 
criteria for availability have now been fulfilled for the name in their 

Most interesting of all, however, if that they disagree regarding these 
two papers describing the same taxon, despite both being from 
essentially the same type of amber deposit:

"By the way, it is not the same thing, the eyes, for instance, are 
strikingly different."

In other words, this may not be a matter of competing for priority, 
after all, as Hans had originally supposed.
