Loboscelidia maculata Kimsey 

Loboscelidia maculata  Kimsey 1988: 72. Holotype male; Australia: Queensland, 7 km sw Bellenden (ANIC).

Material studied.

Australia: Queensland: 7 km sw Bellenden (1 male, ANIC); Mossman Gorge (2 males, CNC); 3 specimens were seen including the holotype.

Diagnosis.

This is one of the five species with a medially flat medial vein as discussed under Loboscelidia defecta  . Of these, only Loboscelidia defecta  and Loboscelidia ora  have been described from Australia. Loboscelidia maculata  can be distinguished from Loboscelidia defecta  by the lack of notauli (shared with Loboscelidia ora  ), and the fore and hindtibial flanges twice as wide as the tubular part of the respective tibiae (narrower in Loboscelidia defecta  and Loboscelidia ora  ).
