We transfer this species from Gryon  to Dyscritobaeus  based on the location of the lateral ocelli distant from the inner orbits of the eyes, the general shape of the head, the presence of malar striae, and a well-developed occipital carina that is dorsally continuous. The generic concept of Dyscritobaeus  somewhat recently was modified by Mineo et al. (2011), who subdivided it into multiple genera based on characters that will likely require reevaluation in the context of the world fauna. However, these issues do not affect our generic transfer of D. microocellus  , because this species matches their constricted concept of the Dyscritobaeus  .
