Anthrenocerus australis is a species of beetle in the family Dermestidae, the skin beetles. It is known commonly as the Australian carpet beetle. It is native to Australia, New Guinea, and New Zealand, and it is present in Europe as an introduced species.

This beetle is a pest of wool and wool products and cattle hides, as well as dried dairy products such as casein.

In New Zealand, Anthrenocerus australis has developed a significant resistance to the most common wool insecticide permethrin.
