The single species of Cuniculotinus was originally described under Chrysothamnus and subsequently placed in Petradoria (L. C. Anderson 1963) based largely on its woody caudices, herbaceous stems, persistent basal leaves, prominently nerved, coriaceous leaf blades, and anatomical features. Later, it was moved back to Chrysothamnus and assigned to sect. Gramini L. C. Anderson along with C. molestus. Phylogenetic analyses based on ITS sequence data showed it to be part of a basal grade below Sericocarpus, very distant from Chrysothamnus and Petradoria (R. P. Roberts and L. E. Urbatsch 2003).
