The pseudoscorpion genus Synsphyronus is widely distributed in the Australasian region, with 37 species described from Australia, two from New Zealand and one from New Caledonia. This paper describes three new species from semi-arid regions of Western Australia, Synsphyronus alisonae, sp. nov., Synsphyronus spatiosus, sp. nov. and Synsphyronus tenuis, sp. nov., which all inhabit saxicolous habitats.
