Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Autosticha was established as an objective replacement name for Automola Meyrick, 1883, a junior homonym.

Autosticha was included in the "Gelechiadae" by Fletcher, 1929, Mem. Dep. Agric. India (Ent.) 11: 29; it was transferred to the Oecophoridae: Autostichinae by Hodges, 1978, in Dominick et al., Moths Am. N. of Mexico 6 (1): 9.

Nye & Fletcher (1991) included AUTOSTICHA in the subfamily OECOPHORIDAE: AUTOSTICHINAE, treated by Hodges, in Kristensen (1999) as a subfamily of AUTOSTICHIDAE.
