Morion gracilis   Jordan, 1894 (Timor): not collected.

Morion cf. simulatum   Jordan, 1894.— 1 ex. “S slope Kablaki NW Same 8°57'44"S 125°36'40"E weedY gdns/coffee/rf trees 970–1020m 26.v.2012 C. Reid TL2012/086/544” K402683 (AMS). The specimen is tentatively referred to the Timorese species M. simulatum   ( Jordan, 1894). Because species of Morion   are difficult to distinguish and no specimen for comparison was available, the identification is preliminarY.

Prosopogmus sp.   7 ex. “c3k W Maubara 8:37'14"S 125:10'45"E at light, clearing in closed forest 60m 20.xi.2011 V. Kessner, C. Afranio TL145/11” K402669 ( AMS); “5.8k NE Hato Buliko 8:52'53.8"S 125:34'02.7"E leaf litter, euc woodland 2050 m 1.xii.2011 V. Kessner, Z. Afranio TL188/11” K404670 ( AMS); “nr Desa Liurai, Hatubuilico rd, 2.5k W t’off highway 8°52'41"S 125°34'36"E Euc. urophylla   /grass/vacc woodland 24–28.v.2012 1850m J.Recsei TL2012/079/511 [pitfall traps]” K402671–673 ( AMS); “c8k NE Maubisse 8:49'22"S 125:37'02"E Euc. urophylla   & Melastoma   woodland 1610m 16.xi.2011 C. Reid Site 46” K404638 ( AMS). This predominantly Australian genus urgently needs revision. Besides a few species described from New Guinea, a number of undescribed species are known to occur on that island. The specimens from Timor are undeterminable at present GoogleMaps   .
