Notes

Heleomicra collessi   remains a little known species. The few available specimens obtained since its original description include no males. See under H. lenis   and the key to species for comparative data (pp. 145, 147 and 157).

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. Many entomologists have collected specimens for this project, particularly D.H. Colless and B.J. Day. Names of all collectors are given in the Introduction. The electron microscopy was performed by S.M. Lindsay, and the microphotography by M. Bulbert. The manuscript was processed by H.M. Smith. Some of the illustrations were drawn by K.C. Khoo, S.P. Kim, and H.M. Smith. Helpful advice on the manuscript was provided by D.J. Bickel, S.F. McEvey, and H.M. Smith.
