Fletcher & Nye (1984) included DICHOGAMA Lederer, 1863 in the PYRALIDAE: ODONTIINAE.

According to the card index of Lepidoptera names in the British Museum (Natural History), PLEURASYMPIEZA is a synonym of DICHOGAMA Lederer and hence in the Crambidae: Pyraustinae (pers. comm. G. Beccaloni).

Shaffer (pers. comm.) treats DICHOGAMA in the CRAMBIDAE: DICHOGAMINAE.
