A new synonymy is proposed: Ambengana complexipalpis Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992 (the type species of Ambengana) syn. n. with Neriene birmanica (Thorell, 1887). Therefore,the genus Ambengana Millidge & Russell-Smith, 1992 syn. n. is synonymized with Neriene Blackwall, 1833. A morphological re-description, diagnosis and comparative illustrations are provided for Neriene birmanica as well.
