Distribution. Indonesia (Sulawesi; Lesser Sunda Islands:Alor, Timor; Maluku Islands: Buru, Halmahera, Seram; Tanimbar Islands: Yamdena; Aru Island; West Papua; Papua (including Biak Island)) ( STÅL 1863; WALKER 1873; BREDDIN 1900, 1901a, both as Ph. gutta ; DISTANT 1914; STEHLÍK 2005b; this paper), ‘New Guinea’ ( STÅL 1870, no detail), Papua New Guinea (incl. New Britain Island, Woodlark Island) ( MONTROUZIER 1855, WALKER 1873, KIRKALDY 1905; this paper), Australia (New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, Victoria) ( STÅL 1870, BLÖTE 1931, MALIPATIL & KUMAR 1975, CASSIS & GROSS 2002). The record from China: Sichuan by VOIGT (2006) represents a misidentification of Ph. gutta gutta .

The record from Solomon Islands (Malaita Island) ( STEHLÍK 1965a) is an error, actually belonging to one so far undescribed species.

Comment. Physopelta woodlarkiana ( Montrouzier, 1855) was considered as conspecific with Ph. gutta famelica since LETHIERRY & SEVERIN (1894). Because the identity of Ph. woodlarkiana was somewhat doubtful (cf. HUSSEY 1929), most authors used the junior name Ph. gutta famelica as valid. Physopelta woodlarkiana in fact represents a distinct species and it is reinstated in the present paper (see below).
