Fletcher (1979) stated:-

A junior homonym of Stibaroma Guest, 1887 - Lepid. Geometridae. Both the generic and specific names were made nomenclaturally available by Guest prior to their proposal and description by Meyrick; S. melanotoxa Meyrick is founded on a different type-specimen from that of S. melanotoxa Guest but the two are subjective synonyms. Stibaroma Guest is thus available as a subjective replacement name.

See: STIBAROMA Guest, 1887.

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