Recent research suggests shown that Lypusa is actually so closely related to Amphibastis – the type genus of the gelechioid subfamily Amphisbatinae (or family Amphisbatidae) – that these groups could be merged. What name would apply to the combined group – Amphisbatidae, Amphisbatinae, Lypusidae or Lypusinae – remains to be seen.
