The monotypic Lissodesmus modestus Chamberlin, 1920,is redescribed from nearly topotypical material, and four new species, L. adrianae L. alisonae L. perporosus and L. margaretae all from Tasmania are added to the genus. Australopeltis Johns, 1964, based on Pseudoprionopeltis martini Carl, 1902, from Victoria, is considered a synonym of Lissodesmus (new synonymy). Some remarks are made on the classification of the nonparadoxosomatid Polydesmida of Tasmania.
