Boholdoyidae was proposed by Kovalev in Kalugina & Kovalev (1985) for the single genus Boholdoya Kovalev. Later, Kovalev (1990) added the genus Daiamyia Kovalev to the family. The family is known only from three species from the Jurassic of Siberia.

Krivosheina & Zaitzev (1989) placed the family as the sister-group to the Eopleciidae in the Anisopodomorpha in their cladogram of superfamilies of Diptera.
