Abstract: The Australian species of the dolichoderine ant genus Turneria Forel, 1895 are reviewed. Turneria rosschinga sp.n. is described as new and additional distribution records for T. bidentata Forel, 1895, the only other species of the genus known from Australia, are provided. Turneria rosschinga sp.n. is restricted to cooler regions of south-eastern Australia and is the only member of the genus found in temperate areas. It has been found foraging arboreally and is likely twignesting as are other species of Turneria.
