Chrysothrix occidentalis Elix & Kantvilas, C. palaeophila Kantvilas & Elix and C. tchupalensis Elix & Kantvilas are described as new to science. In addition, the new combination Chrysothrix sulphurella (Räsänen) Kantvilas & Elix is proposed, C. granulosa G. Thor is reported for the first time from Australia (including Tasmania) and New Zealand, and C. xanthina (Vain.) Kalb for the first time from Tasmania, Norfolk Island and New Zealand. A key to the Australian species of Chrysothrix is presented. Chemical data on non-Australasian species of the genus are also provided.
