The Australian members of the genus Hoplopleura (Hoplopleura, Anoplura) are revised. Hoplopleura uromydis n. sp. from Uromys caudimaculatus caudimaculatus (Krefft, 1867), Hoplopleura gyomydis n. sp. from Pseudomys (Gyomys) fumeus (Brazenor, 1934), Hoplopleura irritans n. sp. from Rattus fuscipes assimilis (Gould, 1858), and Hoplopleura masticomydis n. sp. from Masticomys fuscus Thomas, 1882 are described. Some other apparently new forms of Hoplopleura are mentioned, but not names since sufficient material is not available. A key to the named species of Hoplopleura is given.
