The Dasyhelea patagonica group is proposed to include seven species from Argentinean and Chilean Patagonia. Four new species, D. dellapei Díaz and Spinelli, D. fueguina Díaz and Spinelli, D. gargola Díaz and Spinelli, and D. ona Díaz and Spinelli are decribed and illustrated based on the examination of adults through binocular compound microscope with attached camera lucida. Three previously known species, D. patagonica Ingram and Macfie, D. reynoldsi Ingram and Macfie, and D. shannoni Ingram and Macfie are redescribed. Dasyhelea chilensis Ingram and Macfie is recognized as a junior synonym of D. patagonica Ingram and Macfie (NEW SYNONYMY). A key to recognition of males and females of the seven treated species is included.
