Material examined

Holotype AUSTRALIA • ♀; Northern Territory, Hermansburg ; “Hermansburg, N.T., S. Australia, H.J. Hillier. 1907 – 233.”, “Type”, “ Olonia ornata Lallemand  , Type, dét. V. Lallemand 19”, “10”; BMNH  .

Remarks

The species is known from a single female and the key to the genera proposed by Fennah (1964) leads to the genus Platybrachys Stål, 1859  . It is quite similar to P. leucostigma ( Walker, 1851)  (illustrations of the latter species available in Hacker 1924: fig. 14) by showing an apical white border on the posterior wings and numerous elongate cells in the costal area. The species is here transferred to Platybrachys  , although it is obvious that a complete revision of the genus will be necessary ( Constant 2008a).
