Ancylophyes was established to denote a subgenus of Ancylis Hübner,  1816 and is the objective replacement name for the preoccupied name Ancyloides Diakonoff, 1982 (also established to denote a subgenus of Ancylis Hübner,  1816) by Diakonoff, 1988 Entomologische Berichten 48 (12) : 195.
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-
Unavailable designations of type-species: (1) Pyralis lundana Fabricius, 1777, was cited by Westwood, 1840, Introd. mod. Classif. Insects 2 (Synopsis Genera Br. Insects): 107, as the type-species of Anchylopera Stephens, 1829. Although Westwood placed Ancylis as a synonym of Anchyloptera this does not constitute an available designation of type-species for Ancylis.
(2) Pyralis laetana Fabricius, 1775, a nominal species not originally included in Ancylis and not linked in synonymy with one of the originally included nominal species when cited as type-species by Walsingham, 1907, Entomologist's mon. Mag. 43: 151.
