Abstract

Sixty-eight nominate triphorids are recorded from Southern Australia, of which the following are described as new: Inella obtusa, I. kimblae, I. carinata, I. intercalaris, Monophorus australica, Teretriphora ponderorum, Hedleytriphora basimacula, Viriolopsis occidua, Euthymella kosugei, Eutriphora pseudocana, Isotriphora simulata, I. vercoi, Bouchetriphora marrowi, Nototriphora vestita, N. unicarinata, Obesula profundior, and Aclophora hedleyi. Viriola truncata n.sp. is described from north-western Australia. Isotriphora amethystina new name replaces Triphora lilacina Verco non Dall. The species are referred to the following genera: Metaxia Monterosato, Seilarex Laseron, Inella Bayle, Hypotriphora Cotton & Godfrey, Subulophora Laseron, Magnosinister Laseron, Monophorus Grillo (= Notosinister Finlay), Sagenotriphora n.gen., Tetraphora Laseron, Teretriphora Finlay (= Distophora Laseron), Hedleytriphora n.gen., Latitriphora n.gen., Mesophora Laseron (= Coriophora Laseron), Viriola Jousseaume (= Solosinister Laseron), Viriolopsis n.gen., Euthymella Jousseaume (= Torresophora Laseron), Eutriphora Cotton & Godfrey, Isotriphora Cotton & Godfrey, Bouchetriphora n.gen., Nototriphora n.gen., Triphora Blainville, Obesula Jousseaume, Aclophora Laseron, Aclophoropsis n.gen., Nanaphora Laseron and Cheirodonta n.gen. The concept of Triphora Blainville is based on T. taeniolata (Hervier), which is considered to be the most likely congener of T. gemmatum Blainville, the little-known type species of the genus. Iniforinae Kosuge and Mastoniinae Kosuge are synonymized with Triphorinae Gray. Socienna Finlay is transferred from Metaxiinae to Cerithiopsidae.
