Abstract

Type species are listed for all Australian genera in the subtribe Paropsina, including necessary first designations for Chrysophtharta Weise, Faex Weise, Notoclea Marsham, Pyrgoides gen. nov., Sterromela Weise, Trachymela Weise and Trochalodes Weise. The synonymy of Notoclea with Paropsis Olivier, and Pyrgoides with Acacicola Lea are confirmed. A new species synonym is recorded: Paropsis hamadryas Stål = Acacicola tristis Lea.
