Scleropatroides Löbl and Merkl, 2003 (Tenebrioninae: Opatrini) is recorded from Australia for the first time, based on Scleropatroides triplehorni Iwan and Matthews, new species. Scleropatroides is compared with the related genera Scleropatrum Reitter, 1877 and PolycoelogastridionReichardt, 1936. The world distribution of the three genera is discussed, and their included species are listed in an appendix. New combinations proposed are Scleropatroides girardi (Ferrer, 2000) and Scleropatroides gustafssoni (Ferrer, 2000), both transferred from Scleropatrum.
