The Caterpillars of this family generally live in shelters made from leaves of their foodplants joined with silk. The family is often included in OECOPHORIDAE, but there are clear physiological differences between the DEPRESSARIIDAE and the OECOPHORIDAE, so it is here treated separately. The DEPRESSARIDAE are much commoner in the northern hemisphere than in the Australia, whereas the OECOPHORIDAE are much better represented in Australia.

The Australian species of DEPRESSARIIDAE, including the 72 described species, are:
