Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Erycides albicilla is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Erycides lilea Reakirt, 1866 (Proc. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 1866 : 339). Further, this taxon is currently treated subjectively as a subspecies of the taxon represented by the older-established nominal species Hesperia polybius Fabricius, 1793 (Ent. syst. 3 (I) : 337).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
