Diagnosis. Daternomina jacksonae   can be distinguished from all other Daternomina species   by having inferior appendages which are small, paired, broad-based, tapering and upturned distally mesally.

Description. (Revised after Neboiss 2003). Head, body and wings brown; wings ( Neboiss 2003, fig. 17E) similar to D. irrorata   ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1–6 ). Forewing length about 2.8–3.2 times width: male 4.1–4.9 mm, female 4.5–5.0 mm. Forewing fork 2 relatively long, sessile, about 1.7–2.1 times length of fork 3, nygma present; fork 3 relatively long, length fork 3 about 1.3–2.3 times length footstalk, footstalk length about 1.8–2.6 times length cross-vein m; r-m and m displaced at fork 3 by about 1.3–1.7 times length cross-vein m; fork 4 length similar to fork 3; fork 5 long, length about 1.8 times length of fork 4. Hindwing length about 3 times width, fork 2 sessile, length about 1.8–2.2 times length of fork 3.

Male. Tergum X membranous ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 7–12 ). Superior appendages strongly laterally compressed; in lateral view, broad, widened distally, length about 1.5 times width ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 7–12 ); in dorsal view, relatively slender, length about 4 times width, with two subapical projections and a group of spines on inner surface ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 7–12 ). Phallus slender, generally tube-like, with a pair of spines apically; with a pair of slender, curved processes (phallic guides) arising from near the base of the inferior appendages ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 7–12 ). Inferior appendages small; in ventral view, paired, discrete, broad basally, tapering distally, separated narrowly by a mesal split ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 7–12 ); in lateral view, slender and upturned ( Fig. 10 View FIGURES 7–12 ).

Female. Genitalia with a pair of large relatively widely separated ‘tongue-shaped’ lobes on sternite VIII, with characteristic ‘teardrop-shaped’ internal structure visible mesally ( Fig. 56 View FIGURES 55–62 ).

Remarks. Daternomina jacksonae   has been collected from Tasmania, eastern half of Victoria and six widely separated localities in eastern New South Wales (latitudinal range 28°53'- 42°58'S). Neboiss’s (2003) figures have been redrawn to allow direct comparisons and to accompany the description that is revised in light of new interpretations of Daternomina   genitalic structures. Some mainland Australian specimens have inferior appendages which are more elongate and slender distally ( Fig. 11a View FIGURES 7–12 ).
