Abstract

Six new genera and 15 new species of Charopidae are described from the brigalow lands of south central Queensland (SCQ) as follows: Rhophodon moffatt sp. nov., Tristanoropa saddler sp. nov., Tristanoropa crowman sp. nov., Tristanoropa palmgrove sp. nov., Brigaloropa costulata gen. et sp. nov., Arcadiaropa sunnyholt gen. et sp. nov., Eddiea carnarvon gen. et sp. nov., Eddiea waddybrae gen. et sp. nov., Eddiea oakwells gen. et sp. nov., Eddiea bigge gen. et sp. nov., Platyumbiropa grafton gen. et sp. nov., Platyumbiropa tabor gen. et sp. nov., Carnaropa racecourse gen. et sp. nov., Carnaropa salvatorosa gen. et sp. nov. and Cineropa roma gen. et sp. nov. Elsothera hewittorum Stanisic, 1996 previously only known from Mt Rose Station, via Taroom, SCQ is given a slightly expanded range and reassigned to Cineropa gen. nov.; the range of Spiraliropa carnarvon Stanisic, 2010 described from the Carnarvon Ranges is greatly expanded to cover more of the SCQ area; and additional new SCQ locality records are provided for the continentally widespread Discocharopa aperta (Möllendorff, 1888).
