Hypotheses on the homology of fore and hind wing venation of Schizopteridae were proposed by Emsley (1969) and Redei (2008).
Emsley (1969), in his monograph on Schizopteridae, proposed three informal genus-groups within the subfamily Schizopterinae: the Corixidea group, Vilhenannus group, and a group comprising Humpatanannus Wygodzinsky, Bironannus Wygodzinsky, Ceratocomboides McAtee and Malloch, and Biturinannus Wygodzinsky, leaving Schizoptera Fieber, Nannocoris Reuter, and several other genera of uncertain affinity unplaced.
