When the genus Shevockia was first published by Enroth and M.-C. Ji (2006), it included two species: S. anacamptolepis (Müll. Hal.) Enroth & M.-C. Ji and S. inunctocarpa Enroth & M.-C. Ji. Shevockia anacamptolepis has been excluded from the genus and now placed in the genus Taiwanobryum by Olsson et al. (2010). Shevockia is now monotypic.
