While preparing a paper on the pselaphid genera of Australia, three groups of the Tyrini, subtribe Tyrina, were discovered which could not be placed within the current generic concepts of the Australian fauna One of hese groups apears to be congeneric with Tyrogetus Broun from New Zealand. white the other two represent undescribed genera, With the recognition of these taxa, the major generic components of the Tyrini appear to be described for Australia

All measurements are in millimeters. Slides of cleared and disarticulated specimens were used to determine the patterns of foveation of the genera. Holotypes are placed in the Australian National Insect Collection Canberra, or in the National Museum of Victoria, Abbotsford.
