Genus Eupolemus

Eupolemus spp. (excepting E. viriscens) are ovate, small (less than 8mm), and have the first antennal segment short (barely, if at all, surpassing the front of the head). All species have pronotum with thin (laminate), reflexed, lateral margins anteriorly. E. viriscens is larger at around 13mm, elongate-ovate, and the first antennal segment much longer.

For the lack of a modern treatment, the species here are tentatively organised based on the old descriptions, the works consulted being that of Dallas (1851, 1852), Walker (1867), Reuter (1881), Van Duzee (1905), Distant (1910) and Jensen-Haarup (1930).  Ten species are listed in Australia.
