Abstract: Currently 39 helconine species (presented in a checklist), belonging to 15 genera and 3 tribes (Brulleiini, Diospilini and Helconini) are known in the Australian Region (Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Tasmania). One new genus (Notodios) and seven new species (Diospilus assimulatus, D. bogdus, D. crassus, D. rieki, D. tasmanicus, D. veptus and Notodios fuscus) are described. Redescriptions are given for Aspicolpus hudsoni Turner, 1922, Aspigonus antipodum (Turner, 1922) comb. n. and Diopsilus rufi ceps Szépligeti, 1905. Keys to the helconine genera and to the Diospilus species of the Australian Region are given. The name Diospilus curtulus Papp, 2012 that incorrectly appeared above the description as ‘Diospilus curtus sp. n.’ is rectified. New faunistic data and taxonomic features are presented for the Neotropical Diospilus fulvus Papp, 1995; the species is new to Honduras. With 182 figures.
