          Abstract

          The Australian pseudoscorpionid fauna, as now known, includes representatives of 7 families and 24 genera, of which Austrohorus (Olpiidae, type species exsul mihi, Western Australia) and Paraustrochernes (Chernetidae, type species victorianus mihi, Victoria) are described as new. Tubbichthonius Hoff (Chthoniidae) is considered to be a synonym of Pseudotyrannochthonius Beier. Of the 53 Australian species, to which a key is given, 12 are described as new, namely-Chthoniidae : Sathrochthonius crassidens, Tyrannochthonius (Tyrannochthonius) laevis, T. (Lagynochthonius) australicus, Pseudotyrannochthonius bornemisszai, P. australiensis; Olpiidae: Austrohorus exsul, Xenolpium squalidum, X. bornemisszai; Garypidae: Synsphyronus (Maorigarypus) fallaciosus; Chernetidae: Nesidiochernes australicus, Paraustrochernes victorianus; Cheliferidae: Protochelifer victorianus. No new specific synonymy is recorded.
