Nye (1975) stated:-
Rhabinopteryx was proposed as a new genus and not (as stated by Neave, 1940, Nomencl. Zool. 4: 29) as an objective replacement name for Ligia Duponchel, 1829, - Lepid., Geometridae.
Poole (1989) included RHABINOPTERYX in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE, subsequently restricted to the genus AMPHIPYRA by Kitching & Rawlins, in Kristensen (1999). Other genera formerly treated in the subfamily AMPHIPYRINAE are treated as HADENINAE by Kitching & Rawlins (loc. cit.).
Poole (1989) included 2 species in the genus RHABINOPTERYX.
