A revision of the Schizomida known to occur in Australia reveals five new genera (Draculoides, Apozomus, Bamazomus, Notozomus and Julattenius) and 25 species, 24 of which are newly described: Draculoides (type and only species, Schizomus vinei Harvey); Apozomus (type species A. watsoni, and A. alligator, A. cactus, A. gunn, A. mainae, A. nob, A. pellew, A. radon, A. rupina, A. spec, A. weipa, A. weiri, A. woodwardi and A. yirrkala); Bamazomus (type species B. bamaga); Notozomus (type species N. aterpes, and N. daviesae, N. ingham, N. ker, N. monteithi, N. raveni and N. rentzi); and Julattenius (type species J. lawrencei, and J. cooloola). Three new combinations are proposed for non-Australian taxa: Apozomus daitoensis (Shimojana), A. yamasakii (Cokendolpher) and Bamazomus siamensis (Hansen). A new notation for identifying homologous setae of the flagellum is introduced.
