Abstract

Stenophragma Skuse was originally described for S. meridianum (Skuse), from Australia. Since then seventeen species have been added to the genus—from Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile, Argentina, and Canada. We add two new species to the genus StenophragmaS. bickeli n.sp. and S. collessi n.sp.—from Western Australia. An identification key for the Australian species of Stenophragma is provided. Comments are made about possible relationships among these new species and the remaining Australasian species of the genus.
