Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Selandriinae, a subfamily of Tenthredinidae new to Australia, and a review of other Australian Tenthredinidae (Hymenoptera: Symphyta).

Abstract

Ten species of Tenthredinidae are now known in Australia. The subfamily Selandriinae is recorded for the first time, with the description of Neostromboceros teres sp. nov. Nematus oligospilus, a Salix-feeding species, is recently adventive in Australia. A new Queensland record is given for Senoclidea purpurata, a species previously recorded as Senoclidea furva. Four of the 10 species are considered native to Australia, and six of them have been introduced. A key is provided for the 10 species.
