Abstract

Haliophasma purpureum Haswell, 1881, types species of the genus, and nine new species of Haliophasma (H. canale, H. cribensis, H. cycneum, H. falcatum, H. pugnatum and H. yarra from Port Phillip and Western Port Bays in Victoria; H. elongatum and H. pinnatum from the New South Wales shelf; and H. syrtis from Moreton Bay, Queensland) are described and figured. A key to these species is presented and their relationships discussed. The genus Haliophasma is redefined and the status of some of its previously included species is questioned.
