The Suborder Annulipalpia is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Family (9): Dipseudopsidae · Ecnomidae · Electralbertidae · Hydropsychidae · Philopotamidae · Polycentropodidae · Psychomyiidae · Stenopsychidae · Xiphocentronidae
Hydropsychidae is a family level taxon consisting of certain caddisflies. [more]
Ecnomidae is a family of caddisflies comprising 9 genera with a total of 375 species. [more]
Hydropsychidae are a family-level taxon consisting of net-spinning caddisflies. Hydropsychids are common among much of the world's streams and a few species occupy the shorelines of freshwater lakes. Larvae of the hyrdopsychids construct nets at the open end of their dwellings which is responsible for their "net-spinning caddisfly" common name. [more]
Philopotamidae is a family level taxon containing certain finger-net and silken-tube spinner caddisflies. [more]
Polycentropodidae is a family level taxon consisting of trumpet-net and tube-making caddisflies. [more]
Psychomyiidae is a family level taxon consisting of trumpet-net and tube-making caddisflies. Members of this family are typically very similar to polycentropodids, but usually differ in leg characters. Larvae also tend to construct silken tubes. [more]
Stenopsychidae is a family level taxon containing medium to large caddisflies, some of which are noted for their black and gold wing pattern. It contains three genera and some seventy species, which can be found in the Ethiopian, Palaearctic, Oriental, and Australian regions. [more]
Xiphocentronidae is a family of caddisflies. It has previously been treated as a subfamily of Psychomyiidae, and has a broad distribution, including parts of Asia, Central Africa and the Americas. It contains seven genera, in two subfamilies: [more]
At least 136 species and subspecies belong to the Family Xiphocentronidae.
