Loboscelidia nigricephala  Kimsey 1988: 72. Holotype male; Australia: Queensland, 21 km s Atherton (QDPI).

Material studied.

Australia: Queensland: Mt. Lewis (1 male, CNC); 21 km s Atherton (1 male, QDPI); Hugh Nelson Range, s Atherton (1 male, BME); 3 males were seen, including the holotype.

Diagnosis.

This is one of five species, including Loboscelidia cervix  , Loboscelidia novoguineana  , Loboscelidia ora  and Loboscelidia parva  , where the frontal projection is broadly flattened and nearly linear in front view. It can be distinguished from these species by the arched medial vein, cu-a as long as or longer than R, foretibial flange as wide as tubular part of tibia, and the mid and hindtibial flanges 1.5 × as wide as tubular part of the tibiae or wider.
