Keys are given to the genera and species of the Rotifera: Monogononta of the families Proalidae (four genera) and Lindiidae (one genus). The proalid genus Wulfertia is not known from Australia, and a single record of Bryceella is doubtful. Two species of Proalinopsis and ten species of Proales are known from Australian inland waters. Proales similis exoculis (Berzins, 1953) is suppressed. Five species of the lindiid genus Lindia are confirmed, with a sixth, known from New Zealand, doubtful. All species of these genera recorded from Australian waters are described and figured with known distribution data and ecological information. Brief comments are included on current rotifer taxonomy and biogeography.
