Two species of tenthredinid sawflies associated with willows are recorded from Australia for the first time: Pontania proxima (Lepeletier), which forms galls on Salix fragilis Linnaeus in Tasmania, and Amauronematus viduatus (Zetterstedt), which defoliates Salix babylonica Linnaeus in south-eastern New South Wales. A key to the five introduced and three endemic species of Tenthredinidae known from Australia is provided. Notes on biology and distribution are given for all species.
