The schizomid genus Notozomus Harvey, 1992 is reviewed and nine new species are described: N. boonah, N. bronwenae, N. curiosus, N. elongatus, N. faustus, N. jacquelinae, N. majesticus, N. maurophila and N. wudjl. Apozomus spec Harvey, 1992 is transferred to Notozomus, forming the new combination N. spec (Harvey, 1992), and the female is described for the first time. The male of N. ingham is described for the first time. Most species are found to occupy small ranges, which may be consistent with speciation events during the mid-Tertiary, rather than being associated with the fragmentation of rainforest habitats during the Pleistocene aridity events in eastern Australia.
