The phylum Onychophora has long been regarded as an important group in evolutionary biology due to its phylogenetic position, ancient history, and Gondwanan distribution. Only recently, however, has the extent of species diversity in Australia been realised. This paper reviews those recent findings and the implications they have for studies of the New Zealand onychophoran fauna.
