Remarks. Rare species only reported from localities in Australia, Cameroon, Japan and New Zealand (Pilato et al. 1991, McInnes 1994, Ito 1995). Horning et al. (1978) suggested that some identifications of this species were doubtful but Pilato & Binda (1997) later confirmed some were correctly identified. The records of this species could suggest a subtropical distribution.
