Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-

Rabila was established in the Limacodidae; it was placed in the Noctuidae by Hampson, 1894, Fauna Br. India (Moths) 2: 169.

Poole (1989) included RABILA in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.).
