Abstract : Three junior homonyms were detected amongst the Lepidoptera and the following replacement names are proposed: Neoeriocera nom. nov. for Eriocera Guenée, 1852 (Noctuidae: Calpinae), Latiphea nom. nov. for Lobocheilos Hampson, 1891 (Noctuidae: Acontiinae) and Kocakina nom. nov. for Himella Grote, 1874 (Noctuidae: Hadeninae). Accordingly, new combinations are herein proposed for the species currently included in these genera: Neoeriocera mitrula (Guenée, 1852) comb. nov. for Eriocera mitrula Guenée, 1852; Latiphea berresoides (Hampson, 1893) comb. nov. for Lobocheilos berresoides Hampson, 1893; Latiphea plana (Swinhoe, 1890) comb. nov. for Lobocheilos illattioides Hampson, 1891 and Kocakina fidelis (Grote, 1874) comb. nov. for Himella fidelis Grote, 1874.
