Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-

Subarchaeopacha was established in the Lasiocampidae; Dr U. Dall'Asta has examined the type-specimen of the type-species, now in the Musée Royal de l'Afrique Centrale in Tervuren, and has confirmed the late Mr W.H.T. Tams' opinion that the genus belongs to the Metarbelidae and it is here transferred to that family.
