Abstract

Genera Grayenulla from Australia and Paraplatoides from Australia and New Caledonia are diagnosed, described and illustrated. Marptusa tenerrima L. Koch, 1979 is established as the generic type of Paraplatoides. Holoplatys caledonica Berland, 1932 is included in Paraplatoides, as are four other new species: P. longulus, P. hirsti, P. christopheri and P. nigrum. Five new representatives of Grayenulla are described: G. wishartorum, G. nova, G. dejongi, G. waldockae and G. australensis.
