Discussion: Psilota tristis  doubtlessly encompasses multiple species as described here. Initial DNA barcode analysis indicate that at least 23 species are represented. Further DNA barcoding and male genitalia dissection is required to adequately separate the full range of specimens into species and will be discussed in a future revision. Furthermore, there are several other species of Psilota  described from Australia that may or may not be synonyms of P. tristis  , including Psilota hirta  , Psilota shannoni  , and Psilota queenslandica  (see ‘species not here recognized’ below). Finally, the type specimens of P. tristis  , P. queenslandica  , and P. hirta  were deposited in Venezuela and were unavailable for study at the time of this publication. Because it is impossible to tell what name should properly be assigned to different Barcode identities without a full revision of this complex, these species have not been treated individually.
