Eugowra n.gen. (Diptera: Empididae: Empidinae: Hilarini) from southeastern Australia and Tasmania comprises three new species: E. colei, E. fusca, and E. uniseta. Males have a distinctive genitalic structure, with the hypandrium reduced to a narrow curved channel that barely covers a mostly free aedeagus. Species fly during the cooler months, and E. colei was collected throughout the winter in Tasmania. This genus is part of the Hilara-Hilarempis complex of genera.
