This species was first mentioned by Blume (1825) who published detailed drawings of A. pallida and a key to all species that are included in that book. Blume (1849) furthermore proposed Aphyllorchis hasseltii with a very short description from Jawa, Indonesia as a similar species to A. pallida. Schlechter (1911) described A. gracilis as a close relative of A. pallida from Sulawesi, Indonesia. All of these proposals of new species were synonymised by Wood et al. (2011) and Pedersen et al (2014). A. pallida has been recorded from tropical countries of South East Asia and Peninsular Australasia (POWO 2021).
