Two species of terrestrial flatworms are described from Macquarie Island. The genus Arthurdendyus is emended, and a new species of Arthurdendyus described. A new record, and description of Kontikia andersoni is provided. The co-occurrence of K. andersoni and new species of Arthurdendyus at the Lusitania Bay site, Macquarie Island, strongly suggests both species are introductions from New Zealand. Circumstantial evidence supports the view that A. vegrandis is vermivorous and is predating upon earthworms at the site. K. andersoni was observed feeding on a slug.
