Oreochrysum often has been treated as Solidago parryi; J. C. Semple et al. (1999) placed Oreochrysum at subgeneric rank within Solidago. Oreochrysum is separated from Solidago on the basis of its stipitate-glandular vestiture, large heads in strongly corymbiform arrays, herbaceous phyllaries, prominent rays, narrow disc corollas with relatively short lobes, linear-lanceolate style-branch appendages, and large cypselae. It has no apparent close relatives within Solidago.
