Nine species of brissid echinoids are described from Eocene to Miocene strata of Victoria, South Australia and the southern part of Western Australia. Redescribed are Gillechinus cudmorei Fell 1964a; Brissopsis tatei Hall 1907; Brissopsis praeluzonica Fell 1964b; Cyclaster archeri (Tenison Woods 1867); Granobrissoides australiae (Cotteau 1889); Meoma tuberculata Hutton 1873 and Spatagobrissus laubei (Duncan 1877). Brissus fosteri and Brissopsis australis are described as new. Brissopsis praeluzonica is described from outside New Zealand for the first time. Micraster brevistella Laube 1869; Hemiaster posita Hutton 1873; Cyclaster morgani Cotteau 1889; and Cyclaster lycoperdon Bittner 1892 are all placed in synonymy with Cyclaster archeri. Granobrissoides Lambert 1920 is reinstated to generic status and G. australiae described in detail for the first time. The late Middle Miocene Eupatagus laubei Duncan 1877 is placed in Spatagobrissus, a genus hitherto known only from the living South African species S. mirabilis H. L. Clark 1923.
