New Zealand Carabidae of the tribe Trechini are revised and relationships to the world fauna are discussed. Five lineages are recognised in the Trechini, 3 of which occur in New Zealand. The New Zealand fauna includes representatives of lineages that were previously regarded as the subtribes Aepina, Homaloderina, and Trechina. Newly described are 3 new genera (Oarotrechus, Waiputrechus, and Kettlotrechus), 1 new subgenus (Mayotrechus) in the genus Duvaliomimus, 18 new species, and 2 new subspecies. A total of 34 species plus 3 subspecies are recognised as follows: Aepine lineage Kenodactylus audouini (Guérin-Méneville), Kiwitrechus karenscottae Larochelle & Larivière, Maoritrechus rangitotoensis Brookes, M. nunni n. sp., M stewartensis n. sp., Neanops caecus (Britton), N. pritchardi Valentine, Oarotrechus gracilentus n. gen., n. sp., Waiputrechus cavernicola n. gen., n. sp.; Homaloderine lineage Erebotrechus infernus Britton, Kupetrechus lamberti (Britton), K. gracilis n. sp., K. larsonae n. sp.; Trechine lineage Duvaliomimus (D.) walkeri walkeri (Broun), D. (D.) walkeri brittoni Jeannel (new status), D. (D.) australis n. sp., D. (D.) chrystallae n. sp., D. (D.) crypticus n. sp., D. (D.) maori (Jeannel) (re-instated), D. (D.) megawattus n. sp., D. (D.) obscurus n. sp., D. (D.) orientalis Giachino, D. (D.) pseudostyx n. sp., D. (D.) styx Britton, D. (D.) taieriensis n. sp., D. (D.) watti Britton, Duvaliomimus (Mayotrechus) mayae mayae Britton, D. (M.) mayae mayorum n. subsp., Kettlotrechus orpheus (Britton), K. edridgeae n. sp., K. marchanti n. sp., K. millari n.sp., K. pluto (Britton), Scototrechus orcinus Britton, S. hardingi hardingi n. sp., S. hardingi worthyi n. subsp., and S. morti n. sp.
