This species was described in the year 1948 due to a  revision of the Gothic Smooth Hawkweed (Hieracium laevigatum ssp. gothicum ((Fr.) Čelak.)), which was considered a distinct species (Hieracium gothicum (Fr.)) at that time, and which was split into nine new species.

The Llanfairfechan Hawkweed is known only from a tiny area within Wales, and seems to be extinct meanwhile.
