Here we present a revision of the Australian species of Stephanopis. The type species S. altifrons is redescribed and S. aspera, S. depressa, S. monticola, S. elongata and S. scabra are considered its junior synonyms. Males of S. altifrons, S. angulata, S. nigra, S. armata, S. fissifrons and S. longimana are described for the first time. We propose neotypes for S. nigra and S. barbipes and describe the female of the latter. Nine species are considered species inquirendae, S. thomisoides as nomen dubium and S. cheesmanae is transferred to Phrynarachne. Seven new species are described, new distribution records are provided and comments are made about the validity of the genus and its relationship with Sidymella species and other Stephanopinae genera from the Australian region.
