Abstract

The genus Habronestes L. Koch, 1872 is revised for the species of New South Wales. The genus now contains 28 species Australia-wide, with 23 species recorded from New South Wales. Habronestes bradleyi (Pickard-Cambridge, 1869), Habronestes macedonensis (Hogg, 1900) and Habronestes pictus (L. Koch, 1865), are redescribed and 20 species are newly described as: H. bicornis n.sp., H. driscolli n.sp., H. giganteus n.sp., H. grahami n.sp., H. hebronae n.sp., H. helenae n.sp., H. hamatus n.sp., H. hunti n.sp., H. jocquei n.sp., H. longiconductor n.sp., H. grayi n.sp., H. minor n.sp., H. monocornis n.sp., H. piccolo n.sp., H. pseudoaustraliensis n.sp., H. ungari n.sp., H. raveni n.sp., H. rawlinsonae n.sp., H. weelahensis n.sp., H. wilkiei n.sp. The species are divided between three species-groups, according to their eye configuration. A key is provided for the three groups as well as for the species.
