The open-holed trapdoor spider genus Kwonkan Main, 1983 is endemic to Australia, and currently contains nine named species, predominately from south-western Australia. We describe three new species from central Australia: Kwonkan dissitus, sp. nov. and Kwonkan procul, sp. nov. from the Simpson Strzelecki Dunefields bioregion of South Australia, and Kwonkan seductus, sp. nov. from the Great Sandy Desert bioregion of the Northern Territory. The gender of the name Kwonkan is discussed, and assumed to be masculine.
