Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Paracymoriza was established in the Pyralidae but was not placed in a subfamily; it as placed in the Pyralidae Hydrocampinae, now Pyralidae Nymphulinae, by Hampson 1896 Fauna Br. India (Moths) 4: 216. A proposal by Rose & Pajni, 1977, Ann. Zool. Agra 12: 147, to transfer Paracymoriza to the Pyralidae Endotrichinae, now Pyralidae Pyralinae has not been adopted in this catalogue on the advice of our colleague, Mr M. Shaffer.

Paracymoriza was treated in the Pyralidae, Nymphulinae in Fletcher and Nye, 1984, 5 : 112.

Paracymoriza Warren, 1890, was also referred to the Nymphulinae from the Endotrichinae (within the Pyralidae) by Yoshiyasu, 1985, Scientific reports of the Kyoto Prefectural University Agriculture (No. 37) : 103.

Shaffer (pers. comm.) treats PARACYMORIZA in the CRAMBIDAE: NYMPHULINAE.
