Figs. 19 View Figure , 20 View Figure

Mesosepis papua  Wygodzinsky, 1966: 396 –398, fig. 119.

Material examined. AUSTRALIA: Queensland: 1 Ψ, Cape York, Top Rocky Yard, 13.9 o S 143.2 o E, 3 May 1961, J.L. Gressitt ( BPBMAbout BPBM); 1 sex unknown, Crystal Cascades, 16.6 o S 145.3 o E, May 1994 (QM); 1 sex unknown, 3 km E.

Lockerbie, Cape York, 10.8 o S 142.5 o E, 19–22 March 1987, G.B. Monteith, Pyrethrum on logs, RF (QM); 2 sex unknown, Kuranda, 16.8 o S 145.6 o E, 22–28 December 1958, D.K. McAlpine (AM).

Diagnosis. This species can be recognized in Australia by the diagnostic features of the genus as well as its wing patterning ( Fig. 19 View Figure ).

Distribution. Northern Queensland and New Guinea ( Fig. 20 View Figure ).

Remarks. Wygodzinsky (1966) described this species as occurring only in New Guinea, though he remarks that a second species is known, but not described, from Australia. Our observations suggest that all Australian material from this genus appears to be conspecific with M. papua  .
