Aylostera oculata is included by some as a form of A. einsteinii. Also sometimes seen as a form of A. euanthema, although plants described as A. euanthema are now regarded as A. oculata. A. oculata is regarded as distinct enough to be given specific status, with two subspecies recognised: A. oculata ssp. oculata (Mosti & Papini 2011), and A. oculata ssp. tilcarensis (Mosti & Papini 2011).
