Nye & Fletcher (1991) included HAEMYLIS in the subfamily OECOPHORIDAE: DEPRESSARIINAE, treated by Hodges, in Kristensen (1999) as a subfamily of ELACHISTIDAE.

Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

The citation by Duponchel is acceptable as a type-species designation as it is contained in the continuation of a layout in which Duponchel stated in the same work, 7 (2): 102, that the species so cited were the types of genera.
