The Haliplidae of Madagascar are reviewed. Six species are known, including two species described here as new: Haliplus gamma sp. n. and Haliplus madagascariensis sp. n. Haliplus aspilus Guignot, 1957 is established as junior synonym of Haliplus incrassatus Régimbart, 1900. A lectotype is designated for Haliplus alluaudi Régimbart, 1903. Haliplus insularis Guignot, 1960 is redescribed. A key to the species of Madagascar is included. Some ecosystem conservation issues related to the occurrence of Haliplidae on Madagascar are discussed.
