Abstract

Australoxeneffa Howden & Storey, the only Australian member of the aphodiine tribe Stereomerini, is revised. Eleven species are described of which the following are new: concinna, kalpara, midgee, mirreen, moogoon, peckonim, teeta, wurrook, zborowskii.

Relationships between species are discussed. Most new specimens were taken in flight interception traps. No information is available on the biology of these suspected termitophiles.
