Abstract

The silverfish fauna of Tasmania is reviewed. Seven species are now recorded, including the intro­duced anthropophilic Ctenolepisma longicaudata Escherich. Within the Ctenolepismatinae Hemitelsella clarksonorum n.gen., n.sp. and Acrotelsella parlevar n.sp. are described. The Heterolepismatinae are represented by an unconfirmed record of Heterolepisma kraepelini Silvestri and Heterolepisma buntonorum n.sp. is described. The inquiline Atelurinae are represented by Australiatelura tasmanica Silvestri, which is redescribed, and a further sympatric species, Australiatelura eugenanae n.sp., is described.
