The Buprestoidae, commonly known as Jewel Beetles, are the eighth largest family of beetles in the world. This Catalogue of the buprestids found in Australia documents four subfamilies, 24 tribes, 37 subtribes, 77 genera and 1205 species.

Full taxonomic information is provided, with the original literature as well as museum data on the original type specimens. For all species known to occur in the Australian fauna, broad distributions are indicated, and, where possible, a short summary of known ecological data is given. References are given to key works that can help identify the fauna at all taxonomic levels. A set of four colour plates illustrates a representative of each subtribe in this often colourful group.
