Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new species of Mafulemesa Wygodzinsky 1966 (Emesinae: Leistarchini) is described from Queensland, Australia. This genus differs from other Leistarchini by its unique wing venation, wherein the M vein inserts on the submarginal vein. This is the first Australian record of Mafulemesa—a genus previously known only from a single species in New Guinea.
