MESOPORINI  Cameron 1959

Paraconosoma Bernhauer 1941 

Paraconosoma Bernhauer 1941: 35  . Type species: Paraconosoma naviculare Bernhauer, 1941  , by monotypy. Note: revision, key to species, Steel (1960); tribal placement, Newton (1985). Notes: Paraconosoma  is an isolated genus tentatively placed in the tribe Mesoporini  , with a basal position in Aleocharinae  based on larval and adult characters (Ashe 2005). It is endemic to New Zealand, with two valid species.

Paraconosoma naviculare Bernhauer 1941 

Paraconosoma naviculare Bernhauer 1941: 36  . Type locality: Hope. Type depository: BMNH LT; FMNHAbout FMNH 1 PLT (designated below). Note: redescription, distribution, Steel (1960). Distribution: New Zealand (AK; BR,MB,NN,SD,WD).

Remarks. Bernhauer did not indicate the number of specimens in the Broun collection he studied for naming this

species. In order to stabilize this name a lectotype and 1 paralectotype are here designated for the two specimens

we recognized as syntypes of Paraconosoma naviculare  .

Type material examined. Lectotype ( BMNH): card-mounted (genitalia in microvial, remaining terminalia

separated on same card), “ Type [round label with red border] // Hope – 23.12. 14. [in Broun’s hand] // / New

Paraconosoma polita Steel 1960 

Paraconosoma polita Steel 1960: 44  (attributed to Broun in litt. (in Acarellus  )). Type locality: New Zealand: North Island, Pirongia, Auckland District. Type depository: BMNH HT, 4 PT; NZACAbout NZAC 1 PT. Distribution: New Zealand (AK,BP,ND,TO,WO; BR).

Remarks. The holotype and 4 paratypes were located in the Broun Collection, but we did not find the paratype in the NZACAbout NZAC indicated by Steel (1960).
