Abstract Cephalosphaera Enderlein is a nearly cosmopolitan genus of big-headed flies (Pipunculidae) which was previously unknown from Australia. Four species have now been found in Australia, all of them undescribed. New species in the subgenus Neocephalosphaera include: C. eukrenaina, C. parthenopipis and C. petila. Only one new species occurs in the nominate subgenus: C. prionotaina. Descriptions and a key to these species are presented.
