Kagalana tonde gen. nov., sp. nov. and Haptolana yarraloola sp. nov. are described from subterranean water in calcretes in the Pilbarra region, Western Australia. Kagalana is characterised by haptorial dactylus on pereopod, short antennule and antenna peduncles, and pleonites and narrow, laterally overlapped by margins of pleonite and pleonite narrower than the pleotelson anterior margin. Haptolana yarraloola is the second record of the genus from Australia, both species of which are from Western Australia.
