Abstract: A new species of Aleiodes (Hemigyroneuron) from Tasmania is described and illustrated. This is the first species of the subgenus known from Australia. The type and only known specimen was reared from a mummified caterpillar collected on Coastal Wattle, Acacia longifolia subsp. sophorae (Labill.) Court, and appears to belong to the Geometridae in agreement with most previous host records for the subgenus. The new species, A. (H.) ellingsenae, has a color pattern that is typical of many larger Australian braconids, with the head and anterior mesosoma orange red, the rest of the body black except for a bright white tergites 2 + 3.
