Parasitism on the pupae of other Trichoptera is predicted for all 10 members of the Orthotrichia aberrans species group in the Hydroptilidae. This prediction is based on evidence from two species: the northern Australian Orthotrichia muscari Wells and the New Guinean/northern Australian Orthotrichia gressitti Wells, immatures of both of which are reported here from philopotamid cases in a recent collection of Trichoptera from Cape York. This paper includes description of seven new Hydroptilidae from northern Queensland: three in Hellyethira Neboiss –H. digitata sp. nov., H. sheldoni sp. nov. and H. davidi sp. nov.; and four in Orthotrichia Eaton – two aberrans-group species, O. trispinata sp. nov. and O. specana sp. nov., and two adornata/kokodana-group species, O. bertie sp. nov. and O. acina sp. nov.
