Guest probably obtained both the generic and specific names from Meyrick as an identification and unintentionally made them nomenclaturally available before Meyrick's generic and specific descriptions were published.

Parsons et al. (1999) included STIBAROMA Meyrick, 1892 as a junior synonym of STIBAROMA Guest, 1887.
