Abstract

Through the kindness of Dr J. W. Evans, I have been able to examine a male Delphacid taken in moss at the summit of Mt Gower, Lord Howe Island. This has proved to represent a new species of the Asiracine genus Notuchus, and is described below. It has become evident during this study that some of the features originally used to define the genus are of no more than specific value, and the opportunity is taken to provide a revised definition.
