Nye & Fletcher (1991) included RECURVARIA in the family GELECHIIDAE.

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

Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

The type-species was included by Haworth as nana with T. nanella in synonymy. Recurvaria nana Haworth, 1828, ibidem: 554, was therefore an unjustified emendation of T. nanella. See also: Hinnebergia Spuler, 1910; Lita Kollar, 1832.
