Emesopsis imbellis: Wygodzinsky, 1966: 363  , fig. 109

Material examined. AUSTRALIA: Queensland: 1 ɗ, West Claudie R., Iron Range, 12.45 o S, 143.14 o E, 50 m, 5–9 December 1985, G. Monteith, Rainforest, sieved litter.

Diagnosis. Diagnosed by the following combination of characters: forewing with a distinct dark circular spot near the apex of the discal cell (see Wygodzinsky 1966, fig. 109 N); M and Cu becoming fused basal of discal cell forming a large triangular basal cell, large subquadrate subbasal cell present, R+M apical of discal cell weakly arched and distinctly branched; postocular region of head with tumid genal area; body length ca. 4.2 mm.

Distribution. Northern Queensland and New Guinea ( Fig. 6View FIGURE 6).

Remarks. The unique colour pattern of the forewing makes this species easily recognized. Previously known only from New Guinea, this species is represented in Australia by a single specimen collected from sieved litter by G. Monteith.
