Abstract
The eastern Australian millipede genus Cladethosoma Chamberlin, 1920 is represented in Queensland by C. monticola sp. nov., C. musgravei sp. nov., C. toowoomba sp. nov., and C. uncinatum Jeekel, 1987. The three new species all occur in the southeast of the State and are likely to be small-range endemics. C. toowoomba sp. nov. was first recorded in 2017 as a digital image on BowerBird, an Australian citizen science website.
