Paraplatytropesa rieki (Paramonov)

Crosskey did not mention the profuse setulae of the propleuron (not present in some other species). Also, the abdominal sternites have profuse long hairs, not just "a few". The male genitalia are shown in Fig. 12 View Figures 12-15 ; note the veryshortsurstyles, whichbarelyprojectbeyondthelateral lobes ofT9.

I have two additional specimens, also from central Queensland (Bundaberg, March 1973, and Bin Bin Range, west of Biggenden , December 1974, both colI. H. Frauca) .

Distribution ( Fig. 26 View Figure 26 , p. 108). Queensland: Palm Island, Springsure, Collinsville, Bundaberg, Biggenden.
