We consider the problem of detecting Mahowald's family $\eta_i \in 2 \pi^{S}_{2^i} in homology. This allows us to identify specic spherical classes in $H_* \Omega_0^{2^{i+1} - 8 + k}S^{2^i-2}$ for $0 \leq k \leq 6$. We then identify the type of the subalgebras that these classes give rise to, and calculate the $A$-module and $R$-module structure of these subalgebras. We shall the discuss the relation of these calculations to the Curtis conjecture on spherical classes in $H_* Q_0S^0$.
