This family is often placed in NOTODONTIDAE, but following Nielsen et al. in "Checklist of Australian Lepidoptera", and James S. Miller in American Museum of Natural History Bulletin #204, we here present it as a separate family. The family is only found in Australia.

The 8 named Australian species of OENOSANDRIDAE are:

Diceratucha xenopis : Small Stub Moth

Discophlebia blosyrodes
Discophlebia catocalina : Yellow-tailed Stub Moth
Discophlebia celaena : Variable Stub Moth
Discophlebia lipauges
Discophlebia lucasii : Lucas' Stub Moth

Nycteropa subovalis : Desert Snub Moth

Oenosandra boisduvalii : Boisduval's Autumn Moth
