Note

The taxonomic status of Austrogomphus praeruptus and Austrogomphus melaleucae is uncertain. The type specimen originally used to describe Austrogomphus praeruptus is now lost. It is probable that all dragonflies identified as Austrogomphus praeruptus may be Austrogomphus melaleucae if found north of the Victorian border.
