Abstract

An artificial key to all the families of the superfamily Acalyptrata believed to occur in Australia and one other Australian family of similar facies is presented. Notes on the setting out of the key and some of the important characters used are included. The superfamily Acalyptrata is briefly defined and the family location of certain genera is emended. A list of families with the more important synonyms is provided.
