The early history of Aphytis was rather confused. Although the genus was not established until 1900, several of the species that are now included in it were described during the nineteenth century, mostly in the older genus Aphelinus Dalman. However, descriptions at that time were generally inadequate by modern taxonomic standards, and quite a few of those early species are at present unrecognizable. Subsequently, even after Aphytis was formally described, a quarter of a century passed before it came to be correctly interpreted and used.
