Austroaeschna ingrid, a new telephlebiid from the Grampians in Victoria, Australia, is described (holotype: McKenzie Falls, 21-23 January 2008, to be deposited in Museum of Victoria, Melbourne). This species is most similar to A. Christine, A. multipunctata and A. obscura but may be distinguished by the length and slenderness of the male anal appendages, particularly the long and narrow appendix inferior, by the pointed female occiput and by the small yellow pattern elements on the front of the synthorax. The larva of A. ingrid stands out by the very slender elements of the anal pyramid.
