Issikiopteryx Moriuti, 1973 was treated in the Gelechiidae in Nye and Fletcher, 1991 Generic Names Moths World 6 : 162.

Issikiopteryx was downgraded to denote a subgenus of Glaucolychna Wu & Liu, 1993 in the Lecithoceridae, by Wu & Liu, 1993, Sinozoologia : 348.

However, since Issikiopteryx is senior to Glaucolychna it cannot be treated as a subgenus of Glaucolychna, rather Glaucopteryx must be regarded as a junior subjective synonym of Issikiopteryx.
