The species of Australian Zodariidae that were described prior to Jocqué (1991) are listed and those of which the identity could be traced are redescribed. Neostorena vituperata and Nostera nadgee (male, female) are described as new and Nostera is widened to accommodate Nostera leucosema (Rainbow) n. comb. Other new combinations are Habronestes grimwadei (Dunn), Habronestes macedonensis (Hogg), Habronestes toddi (Hickman), Storosa tetrica (Simon), Neostorena torosa (Simon), Neostorena spirafera (Koch) and Mallinella zebra (Thorell). The species Hetaerica aresca and H. variegata and the genus Hetaerica are invalidated. New records for a number of recently described species are provided.
