I have been informed that the name Oligoneura Davis, 1978 (type species: Oligoneura basidactyla Davis), which was recently proposed for a new genus of moths (Davis, 1978, Fla. Ent., 61 ( 4) : 217), is preoccupied by Oligonena Bigot, 1878. The latter was published for a genus of Diptera in the family Acroceridac (Ann. Soc. Ent. France, Bull. 5 (8): 95). l therefore, propose the new name Manoneura, (type species: Oligoneura basidactyla Davis) to replace the junior homonym Oligoneura Davis. The etymology of Manoneura is similar to its synonym and refers to the reduced wing venation demonstrated by the type species. Likewise, Manoneura is to be considered feminine in gender.
