Abstract

Observations are presented on several small collections of stomatopods from Australia and New Zealand. In all, 24 species in 10 genera are reported, with the treatment of individual species varying from a brief listing to a complete redescription. A key to the 14 genera known from the area is presented. The New Zealand and Australian species of Heterosquilla are redescribed, and one new genus, Hadrosquilla, and two new subgenera of Heterosquilla, Austrosquilla and Heterosquilloides, are recognized. A new species of Manningia from Australia, M. notialis, is described. Gonodactylus platysoma Wood-Mason and G. smithii are resurrected from the synonymy of G. chiragra (Fabricius). It is shown that Squilla inornata Tate is not synonymous with S. perpensa Kemp, as previously believed, and that S. anomala Tweedie is a synonym of S. perpensa. Synonymies for the few New Zealand stomatopods are brought up-to-date. The references include most of the papers published on adult stomatopods from the Indo-Pacific since 1941.
