Abstract

For the first time Thaumaleidae from Australia are named and classified. They are placed in two genera, Austrothaumalea Tonnoir and Niphta n. gen. The following new species are described: Austrothaumalea australis n. sp., A. barrydayi n. sp., A. capricornis n. sp., A. cervulus n. sp., A. commoni n. sp., A. denticulata n. sp., A. fusca n. sp., A. macalpinei n. sp., A. minnamurrae n. sp., A. similis n. sp., A. simplex n. sp., A. sinuosa n. sp., A. spinosa n. sp., A. tasmanica n. sp., A. tonnoiri n. sp., A. uptoni n. sp., A. victoriae n. sp., A. zentae n. sp., Niphta bickeli n. sp., N. collessi n. sp., N. farecta n. sp. A key is given to the males of all recognized Australian species and to the females so far as identifiable. New combinations are Niphta halteris (Edwards) and Niphta nudipennis (Edwards) from South America, both originally described under Austrothaumalea.
