Abstract

The Australian species of the genus Renocila are recorded for the first time. Three species are recorded: R. ovata Miers, R. alkoo n. sp., and R. plesiopi n. sp. Lironeca dubia Nierstrasz is found to be a synonym of Renocila ovata. The genus Rosca Schiödte & Meinert is placed in synonymy with Renocila. A synoptic list of all Indo-Pacific species of Renocila is given, as well as a new generic diagnosis and a key to the Australian species.
