Abstract

The genus Storenosoma Hogg, 1900 is revised and now contains thirteen species, S. hoggi (Roewer), S. altum Davies, S. supernum Davies, S. terraneum Davies, S. bifidum n.sp., S. bondi n.sp., S. forsteri n.sp., S. grayi n.sp., S. grossum n.sp., S. picadilly n.sp., S. smithae n.sp., S. tasmaniensis n.sp., and S. victoria n.sp. A new genus, Oztira, is described to contain Australian species previously ascribed to the New Zealand genus Otira Forster & Wilton. Oztira contains four species, Oz. affinis (Hickman) n.comb., Oz. aquilonaria (Davies) n.comb., Oz. summa (Davies) n.comb., and Oz. kroombit n.sp. The relationships between Storenosoma, Oztira, Otira and Pakeha are discussed.
