The Australian species of Hishimonus Ishihara are reviewed. Three new species are added to the fauna: H. leichhardti sp. nov, H. malipatili sp. nov. and H. spatulatus sp. nov. Hishimonus diffractus Dai & Fletcher, is recorded from Australia for the first time and H. passiflorae (Evans) is redescribed. H. melaleucae (Kirkaldy) is excluded from the genus. A key for the determination of the Australian species of Hishimonus is provided. The relationships of the Australian fauna with the Oriental fauna are briefly discussed.
