Comments: Despite the original label of Holotype refers only to“ Australia ”, the NHM register states: “ Australia ”, “Sydney & Moreton Bay”, “The localities are Maitland “Partinston”. Moreton Bay , Wollanggong, Para-matta   . Sydney.” Maitland (33°48’54”S, 151°01’4”E), Wollanggong (34°25’59”S, 150°52”59”E) and Paramatta (33°48’54”S, 151°0’4”E) are cities of New South Gales State, which are from or close to Greater Western Sydney region, Autralia ( ABS 2011); Moreton Bay (27°17’24”S, 153°15’34”E) is a locality between the cities of Brisbane and Redland, both in Queensland State, Australia (CGQ 2020).

Original combination: Osmylus tenuis Walker, 1853: 234

Missing parts: apical right flagellomeres, left pedicel, left flagellomeres, posterior right femur, posterior right tibia, posterior right tarsomeres.

Comments: In the original description, Walker (1853) mentioned three specimens, which are in NHMUK. Kimmins (1940) designated a male as “type”, which is the lectotype ( Fig. 61 View FIGURE 61 ) of the species by explicit designation as “type” (article 74.6 of ICZN); the other two specimens (NHMUK010594260; NHMUK010594314) are considered paralectotypes.

Walker also mentioned in the original description that two specimens (a,b) are from Dr. Hooker’s collection, probably he was referring to Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker (1817–1911), a British botanist and explorer, and also Charles Darwin’s closest friend. He received material from Ronald Campbell Gunn who was an outstanding naturalist resident in Van Diemen’s Land ( BGS 2020).

The third specimen (c) was from Adelaide and is from Mr. Steven’s collection, probably Tillyard was referring to Samuel Stevens (1817–1899) who was a skilled and successful collector, forming extensive and important collection of British insects, especially Coleoptera and Lepidoptera, and he also was agent of Alfred Russel Wallace in the distribution of his natural history collections ( Baker 2001).

Original combination: Stenosmylus stenopterus McLachlan, 1867: 267  

Current combination: Stenosmylus stenopterus McLachlan, 1867  

Type locality: [“ Australia ”], Australia, probably South Australia (state).

Lectotype ♀ (by explicit designation, as “type” or “typus”) with labels: ( Fig. 62 View FIGURE 62 )

Condition of type: good condition, sternum of mesothorax with glue, abdominal apex and genitalia slide mount-ed and pinned together with the specimen.

Missing parts: flagellomeres of both antennae.

Comments: In the original description, McLachlan (1867) mentioned three specimens. Kimmins (1940) designated a female as “type”, which is the lectotype ( Fig. 62 View FIGURE 62 ) of the species by explicit designation as “type” (article 74.6 of ICZN); the other two specimens (NHMUK010595123; NHMUK010594709) are considered paralectotypes. Smithers (1990) mentioned “The only published precise locality in the literature appers to be that of the designated type specimen ( Kimmins 1940) from Bakewell, South Australia.”, however Bakewell refers to the collector instead of a place. The accession register notes that the specimens were donated to the NHMUK in 1859 from the collection of Robert Bakewell (1810–1867), who lived in Australia and built up a large collection of insects ( BDBC 2020).

Original combination: Stenosmylus turneri Kimmins, 1940: 171

Condition of type: good condition, abdominal apex and genitalia slide mounted and pinned together with the specimen.

Missing parts: medial left femur, medial left tibia, medial left tarsomeres, posterior left femur, posterior left tibia, posterior left tarsomeres.

Comments: The specimen was collected, and probably named after Rowland Edwards Turner (1863–1945), an entomologist who worked voluntarily for the Department of Entomology of NHMUK for more than 30 years. In the inter-war period he collected for the NHMUK in Australia and South Africa ( Benson 1946).
