The tribe Psammodiini was revised on the basis of the Australian Region. All the genera, except for Rhyssemus Mulsant, are discussed. The taxa discussed, keyed and illustrated include Aphodopsammobius Endrodi with A. zietzi (Blackburn) comb. nov. (Ataenius zietzi), A. australicus (Blackburn) comb. nov. (Psammobius aestralicus, P. densepunctatus Petrovitz syn. nov., A. demarzi (Petrovitz) comb. nov. (P. demarzi) and A. matthewsi sp. nov., genus Psammodius Fallen with species P. (Leiopsammodius) litoralis Lea, P. (L.) rufus sp. nov., P. (L.) freyi (Petrovitz), and P. (?) (L.) implicatus (Schmidt); genus Diastictus Mulsant with species D. antipodum (Fauvel) comb. nov., [Psammobius antipodem], D. pachypus (Lea) comb. nov. [Psammodius pachypus], D. hawaiiensis sp. nov., D. obscurior (Blackburn) comb. nov., [P. obscurion] and D. tibialis (Fabricius), introduced (new geographic record); genus TESARIUS, new genus for Phycochus sulcipennis Lea; genus Phycochus Broun with species P. graniceps Broun and P. lobatus Broun (?); The tribe Psammodiini belongs to the subfamily Aphodiinae, family Scarabaeidae. Australian species of the subfamily were revised by Blackburn (1904). Besides this, the subfamily was revised on the world basis by Schmidt (1922). Neither the subfamily nor the tribe Psammodiini were revised since then. Since 1922, 6 new species were described (Lea 1923, Schmidt 1925, Petrovitz 1961, Petrovitz 1964), and 1 Palearctic species was reported from Australia (Petrovitz 1961).
