Abstract

Twenty-six species of Aorinae are recorded from Australia of which 21 species are as yet unknown from outside the continent. Sixteen species are new to science and are described and figured. Five further species which were poorly known, which showed minor differences from previously described material, or which were previously unknown from the western Pacific, are also figured. A new genus is erected for Autonoe philacantha Stebbing.
