Fletcher (1979) stated:-

Neognopharmia was originally proposed as a subgenus of Gnopharmia Staudinger, 1892, and was again so proposed by Wehrli, 1953, ibidem 4 (Suppl.): 568.

Neognopharmia Wehrli 1951 was originally an unavailable name as no type-species was designated; Kocak, 1981, Priamus 1 (3) : 105.
