Material examined

Holotype AUSTRALIA • ♀; W Australia, NW coast ; “ N. Holl., N.W. Coast / on the reverse / 44, 14”, “Type”, “ Eurybrachys apicalis  , ”, “Re-pinned on stainless”; BMNH  .

Remarks

This species is known from a single female, but closely related species were examined in the course of this study and their male genitalia show that they belong to the genus Maeniana  , a view supported by a comparison with the male genitalia of the type species, Maeniana hirsuta ( Jacobi, 1928)  (Constant, unpublished data).
