A junior homonym of Neacerea Druce, 1898 May. There is no objective replacement name but the type-species of Neacerea Hampson, 1898 [December], is currently considered to be congeneric with the type-species of Neacerea Druce, 1898 May. The latter is therefore available for use as a subjective replacement name.
