Abstract

Four new species of Ischnomeidae Hansen, 1916 are described from the continental slope of south–eastern Australia: Haplomesus franklinae, Ischnomesus tasmanensis, I. justi and Stylomesus sarsi. The genera Haplomesus and Stylomesus are recorded from Australain waters for the first time. The family and three genera are rediagnosed to accommodate the new species.
