German botanist Ludwig Diels described the Eastern Goldfields horned mallee as a subspecies of Eucalyptus occidentalis in 1904, material comprising the type specimen collected in Coolgardie district by Ernst Georg Pritzel and Gilmore. The epithet eremophila means "desert-loving". Joseph Maiden raised it to species status in 1921.
