The Commission has not conserved the generic name Sematura Dalman, 1825 (Lepidoptera, sematuridae), a well-established name for a genus of moths widespread in the Neotropical region, threatened by its rarely used senior subjective synonym, Mania Hübner, 1821, which dropped out of use because it was incorrectly considered to be an unavailable homonym. The Commission did not give Sematura Dalman, 1825 precedence over Mania Hübner, 1821. The name Mania Hübner, 1821 is placed on the Official List of Generic Names in Zoology.
