Tribe Harpalini   , subtribe Amblystomina  

This subtribe is sometimes included in, or treated as a synonym, of Harpalina ( Bouchard et al., 2011). Revisions of the southern Oriental species, as well as of the Australian Amblystomina   , are very much required.

Amblystomus quadriguttatus (Motschulsky, 1858)   .— 2 ex. “Loi Huno 8.77836S 126.37078E pasture/vine thicket 280m TL2012/008/044 black light trap @ hotel 29.v.2012 ” K402665 ( AMS); “Fatukama E of Dili 8: 31.585S 125: 39.727E dry acacia scrub, beach shingle 5m 8.xi.2011 C. Reid Site 2 cow dung” K402664 ( AMS). A common species in the southern Oriental Region and in northern Australia.

Amblystomus sp.   1 ex. “Hatoudo 8°58'55"S 125°37'27"E riverine rain forest, 735m 27.v.2012 C.Reid TL2012/088/546 light sheet” K402663 ( AMS). In view of the lack of revisions of the southern Oriental as well as Australian species this is not determinable GoogleMaps   .
