This name appeared for the first time as “Grassatores Kury” in Giribet et al. (2002), but the hypothesis of the Grassatores may be tracked back to Kratochvíl (1958), widely corroborated by Martens (1980), Giribet et al. (1999; 2002; 2010), Shultz (1998), Shultz & Regier (2001), Giribet & Kury (2007), Mendes (2009), and Sharma & Giribet (2011) .
