Abstract

The Heteromeringia of Australia and Tasmania are revised, with illustrations and a key to species provided. Thirteen of the twenty Australian Heteromeringia are described here as new: H. asteia n.sp., H. bisetosa n.sp., H. digitula n.sp., H. helina n.sp., H. hypobrunnea n.sp., H. limacens n.sp., H. macropa n.sp., H. magnicauda n.sp., H. montana n.sp., H. patula n.sp., H. ptenopa n.sp., H. stegna n.sp. and H. trisetosa n.sp. Heteromeringia pulla D.K. McAlpine, new synonym, is treated as a junior synonym of H. spinulosa D.K. McAlpine. A key to the six genera of Clusiidae occurring in Australia is also provided.
