The presently accepted taxonomy of the Gastropoda is the revision of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).

This species was originally posted at these websites as Cuthona purpureoanulata (Baba, 1961) [Catriona],
then according to Miller (2005) changed into Trinchesia purpureoanulata (Baba, 1961) [Catriona].
Cella et al. (2016) moved it to the new Genus
Abronica  Cella, Carmona, Ekimova, Chichvarkhin, Schepetov & Gosliner, 2016
in the Family Fionidae  J.E. Gray, 1857
