( Figs. 11 View FIGURES 11–14 , 15 View FIGURES 15–18 , 210, 248)

Hydraena magnetica Zwick, 1977: 180   .

Type Material. Holotype (male): Queensland, Magnetic Island [ca. 19° 8' S, 146° 50' E] [labels: Magnetic I. N. Queensland A. M. Lea // Hydraena magnetica Zwick   male Holotypus // DIGITAL IMAGE captured 2004 P. D. Perkins]. Deposited in the SAMA. GoogleMaps  

Differential Diagnosis. Similar in size, body form and plaques to H. miniretia   ; differing therefrom by the non-microreticulate pronotal interstices and the more finely punctate elytral series ( Figs. 11, 12 View FIGURES 11–14 ). The aedeagi of the two species differ distinctively ( Figs. 15, 16 View FIGURES 15–18 ).

Description. Size: holotype (length/width, mm): body (length to elytral apices) 1.13/0.44; head 0.17/ 0.29; pronotum 0.29/0.37, PA 0.32, PB 0.33; elytra 0.67/0.44. Head and large pronotal macula piceous, margins of pronotum light to dark brown, elytra dark brown, legs and maxillary palpi light brown to testaceous.

Frons punctures slightly smaller than 1xef; interstices shining, 2–5xpd. Clypeus microreticulate laterally, finely sparsely punctate medially. Mentum shining, very finely sparsely punctate; postmentum microreticulate. Genae raised, lacking posterior ridge. Pronotal punctures on disc slightly larger than those of frons, interstices shining, 2–3xpd, punctures denser at anterior, interstices ca. 1–2xpd; PF1 and PF4 absent; PF2 very small and shallow, nearly absent; PF3 shallow.

Elytral punctures about equal size of largest pronotal punctures. Intervals not raised, shining, width about 1xpd, as are interstices between punctures of a row. Apices in dorsal aspect gradually rounded to subtruncate, in posterior aspect margins form moderately strong angle with one another.

Ratios of P2 width and plaque shape (P2/w/l/s) ca. 2/1/3/4. P1 laminate; median carina angulate in profile. P2 narrow, l/w ca. 2/1, sides parallel, apex blunt. Plaques narrow, elongate ovals, widely separated and nearly parallel to one another, located in posterior 1/3 of metaventrite on sides of shallow median depression. AIS flat, width at arcuate posterior margin 2–3x P2. Protibia slightly widened near midlength; metatibia with small indistinct setae on medial surface of distal 0.5. Last sternite and last tergite simple, symmetrical.

Aedeagus ( Fig. 15 View FIGURES 15–18 ) main-piece much wider distally than at base, with small, hook-like process on apical part of right side; distal piece (ventral view) with two lobes and two curving flagella; parameres simple, left slightly longer than right. Female last tergite with small apicomedian incision, setae slender, tapering; gonocoxite as illustrated (Fig. 210).

Distribution. Currently known from several localities in northern Queensland, three localities in southern Queensland, and two localities in Victoria (Fig. 248).
