[The Australian genus Hypsidia Rothschild, currently assigned to the Pyralidae, is reassigned to the Drepanoidea (Drepanidae sensu Minet (1983), 'Cymatophoridengruppe' of Kennel & Eggers (1933)). Baryphanes Turner, a genus previously mIsplaced in the Noctuidae is synonymized with Hypsidia. A new species (Hypsidia grisea) is described. Eggersops Sick, a genus with a single species, is correctly assigned to the Drepanoidea, and is synonymized with Hypsidia. Hypsidia is divided into the monophyletic erythropsalis group and, for convenience, the niphosema 'group', which may or may not be monophyletic. The distribution of the expanded genus is disjunct, with the erythropsalis group confined to rainforests of northeastern Queensland and the niphosema 'group' to southern Western Australia. The reassignment of Hypsidia (in the revised sense) to the Drepanoidea is based largely on the form of the tympanal organs. The structure of these organs is summarized. The position of Hypsidia within the Drepanoidea remains uncertain, but we briefly explore the question taking particular account of the presence of ocelli in the species of the niphosema 'group', the arrangement of the veins in the hindwing, and the clubbed frenulum of the male., Hypogastrura (Mucrella) hibemica sp. n. was collected during winter by pitfall traps in deciduous woodland in Wayne Co., Indiana. An identification key to the four known species of the subgenus is given.]
