Austropsopilio Forster, 1955 is a genus of Dyspnoi with 7 species from Australia and Chile.

SynonymyEdit

  • Austropsopilio Forster 1955: 357; Gruber 1974: 252; Cokendolpher & Maury 1990: 60 [type species: Austropsopilio novahollandiae Forster, 1955
  • Tasmanopilio Hickman 1957: 65; Gruber 1974: 252 [type species: Tasmanopilio fuscus Hickman, 1957; junior subjective synonym of Austropsopilio Forster, 1955 by Shear (1974b); synonymy disclaimed by Cokendolpher and Maury (1990), but reaffirmed by Shear (1996: 455)].

RemarksEdit

Cokendolpher & Maury (1990: 59 ff., maps 1–2) reported material of this genus from Argentina and Chile, but refrained from naming any species because of the inadequate material. Only 13 years later an Austropsopilio from South America was named.
