The identity and placement of Amphiclada fervescens Meyrick, 1912 is reassessed. We conclude that its transfer from the Heliodinidae to Blastobasidae is unfounded. However, we maintain provisionally its placement in the Gelechioidea, an entity within incertae sedis, as neither facies nor genitalia provide convincing evidence of a familial status within the superfamily. A redescription of A. fervescens is included, as are images of its holotype and associated female genitalia, to help substantiate our decision on placement.
