Hodges, in Kristensen (1999) included POLYHYMNO in the subfamily GELECHIINAE.

Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Polyhymno when established contained a second nominal species, P. sexstrigella, but this was doubtfully included and, under the Code (Edn 3), Article 68(d), is not eligible for fixation as type-species.
