Subfamily Parachrostiinae   , tribe Duplexini (Fibiger, 2008)   , page 73.

The genus Duplex Fibiger, 2008   , with 6 known species, was previously characterised (Fibiger 2008: 74).

The distribution of Duplex species   covers large disjunct areas of the tropics and subtropics between Taiwan, Thailand, and Indonesia from east to west and north to south on many of the islands ( Fibiger 2008a). even the northern part of New South Wales. All species – also the few species not belonging in genus Duplex   – are generic representations from SE Asia and Indonesia.

The unique generic characters for Duplex   have already been listed in Fibiger (2008a), so only a few of these are repeated here together with the apomorphic characters for the species treated below.

The following 5 species are added here: one from East Timor (one species, D. timorenses   has already been described from western Timor, Indonesia), and 4 from northern and eastern Australia.
