Brachmia is a genus of the twirler moth family (Gelechiidae). Among these, it is sometimes placed in the subfamily Dichomeridinae. Other authors have used it as type genus of a distinct subfamily Brachmiinae. But in the scheme used here, the "Brachmiinae" are considered an ill-defined assemblage of twirler moths whose relationships are not yet sufficiently determined, and the present genus is consequently placed incertae sedis within the Gelechiidae.
