Abstract

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.
