Abstract

Corindia n. gen. and Australian Thrypticus Gerstäcker are described, including nine and three new species, respectively: C. major, C. minor, C. capricornis, C. collessi, C. nigricornis, C. robensis, C. cooloola, C. torresiana and C. trudis; T. australis, T. tropicus and T. jortescuensis. The two genera have a sister-group relationship and their phylogenetic position within the subfamily Medeterinae is discussed. A lectotype is designated for T. abditus Becker. The New Zealand Thrypticus nigrichaetus Parent is regarded as Chrysotimus nigrichaetus (Parent), new combination.
