A taxonomic treatment of the Australian net-winged midges (Diptera: Blephariceridae) of the tribe Apistomyiini is presented. Characters supporting the monophyly of the tribe are described and illustrated. New taxa are Theischingeria rieki gen. et sp. nov.,.Parapistomyia mueller sp. nov. and Parapistomyia bulbifera barringtoniana ssp. nov., bringing the total number of Australian Apistomyiini to eight species and subspecies in four genera. The New Guinean Curupirina papuana Zwick and Hortle is transferred to the Australian genus Parapistomyia Zwick; its adult and pupa are described. A morphocline between the two Australian species of Apistomyia is described. New keys to larvae, pupae and adults of all Australian Apistomyiini are presented. The phylogenetic relationships within the tribe are discussed.
