Abstract

A new genus Meyameta gen. n. is established for the South African Glocia straminea Aurivillius, 1921 which was considered within the Madagascan genus Napta Guenée, 1865 (type species Napta serratilinea Guinée, 1865) and a new species Meyameta roberti sp. n. from Namibia is described. The new genus is compared with the genera Napta and Henometa Aurivillius, 1927 (type species South African Pachymeta clarki Aurivillius, 1909).
