Nye & Fletcher (1991) included ANTAEOTRICHA in the subfamily OECOPHORIDAE: STENOMINAE, treated by Hodges, in Kristensen (1999) as ELACHISTIDAE: STENOMATINAE.
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
When Antaeotrichia was established, Zeller included walchiana Stoll, and placed in its synonymy griseanum Fabricius Stoll, and placed in its synonymy griseanum Fabricius sensu Zeller, 1839, and "?Pyralis griseana Fabricius". Becker, 1984, Revta bras. Ent. 28: 134, 171, has shown that Pyralis griseana Fabricius, 1794, Ent. Syst. 3 (2): 265, is a junior subjective synonym of Phalaena walchiana Stoll and that griseanum sensu Zeller, 1839 and 1854, were correct identification of griseana Fabricius. When Walsingham designated as type-species Pyralis griseana Fabricius, 1794, a nominal species only doubtfully included in Antaeotricha, he also on the same line placed "walchiana Zeller, 1854" was not a misidentification and should be treated as an incorrect authorship of walchiana Cramer, one of the nominal species originally included in Antaeotricha.
