In the present paper three new species of the genus Gomphodella De Deckker, 1981 are described: G. glomerosa sp. nov., G. hirsuta sp. nov., and G. yandii sp. nov. Also, the type species of the genus, G. maia De Deckker, 1981, is redescribed and the generic diagnosis is revised. All the new species are characterized by little sexual dimorphism in the valve shape and by the absence of the posterior seta on the fourth antennular segment, features that clearly separate them from G. maia. All species were collected in Western Australia, the new ones in subterranean waters, and G. maia from a spring.
