Oemleria Reichenbach (1841) is an overlooked earlier name for Osmaronia Greene. It is possible to override the principle of priority by conserving established generic names against earlier ones, but the proposal to do so in this instance was rejected by the committee set up by the International Botanical Congress to decide such matters. The species concerned (the genus is monotypic) was transferred to Oemleria in 1975.
