Abstract

A catalogue of the Australian Scoliidae based on published literature is presented. The Australian fauna is represented by one subfamily, containing two tribes Campsomerini and Scoliini, 11 genera Australelis, Laevicampsomeris, Phalerimeris, Pseudotrielis, Radumeris, Trisciloa, Austroscolia, Scolia, Diliacos, Laeviscolia, and Liacos and 20 species. Four species have erroneously been recorded from Australia and some confusion surrounds reports of a fifth species. Many names are catalogued with annotations to explain confusing aspects of taxonomy and nomenclature applied by previous authors.
