Nemophas Thomson, 1864 is a genus of the subfamily Lamiinae, tribus Lamiini widespread from the Philippines to New Britain and Solomon Islands throughout Indonesia.

In the last revision, Iothocera Thomson, 1864 was recognized as a synonym of this genus.

Many thank to Gérard Chemin for his collaboration in sending many pictures.

This key is part of a paper available here (after request).
