A new species of Yoroa Baert, Yoroa taylori sp. n., is described from northern Queensland, and the type species, Yoroa clypeoglandularis Baert from Papua New Guinea, is redescribed. The previously unknown females of Y. clypeoglandularis possess identical clypeal openings to those of the males, and possess two pairs of spermathecae and a dorsoventrally flattened pedipalpal claw. These are character states that are apomorphic for the Hadrotarsinae.
