Key to adult males of Austropsyche Banks  

1. Phallus bulbous distally, narrowly truncate and sclerotised apically; sharp, sclerotised, ventrally curving spine arising apicolaterally on abdominal segments IX/X, and second thread-like sclerotised process arising from internal apodeme ( Fig. 67 View FIGURES 59–69 ); mesal process on coxopodite of each gonopod about half length of its harpago ( Figs 66–67 View FIGURES 59–69 , 94 View FIGURES 84–101 )...... Austropsyche morana   sp. nov.

-. Phallus not bulbous distally, without sclerotised apex; abdominal segments IX/X with or without membranous plate or lobe apicolaterally, but without apicolateral sclerotised spine; mesal process on each coxopodite variable in length (e.g., Figs 52 View FIGURES 49–58 , 59, 63)................................................................................................. 2

2(1) Gonopods each with mesal process stout, apically roughly truncate, basal on coxopodite ( Figs 68–69 View FIGURES 59–69 , 90–91 View FIGURES 84–101 ).......................................................................................... Austropsyche kaputar   sp. nov.

-. Gonopods each with mesal process narrow, conical or slender, curving to acute or irregular apex, apical or sub-apical on coxopodite (e.g., Figs 52 View FIGURES 49–58 , 59, 63)............................................................................ 3

3(2) Forewings each with median cell equal in length to discoidal cell ( Figs 50 View FIGURES 49–58 , 78 View FIGURES 70–83 ); gonopods each with mesal process apical on coxopodite ( Figs 59, 61 View FIGURES 59–69 , 92, 93 View FIGURES 84–101 ); with pair of slender sclerotised spines projecting distally ( Figs 59–60, 61–62 View FIGURES 59–69 , 92–93 View FIGURES 84–101 ), without short sclerotised spines subapically on phallus.............................................................. 4

-. Forewings each with median cell about 1.3x length of discoidal cell (e.g., Figs 49 View FIGURES 49–58 , 77 View FIGURES 70–83 ); gonopods each with mesal process sub-

apical on coxopodite; without pair of slender, elongate, sclerotised spines as above (e.g., Figs 52 View FIGURES 49–58 , 63–65), but with short sclerotised spines on phallus (e.g., Figs 53, 56 View FIGURES 49–58 , 63–64, 87–88)....................................................... 5 4(3) Gonopods each with mesal process about 3/4 length of harpagone, slender, acute apically; small conical tubercle between mesal process and harpago ( Figs 59 View FIGURES 59–69 , 92 View FIGURES 84–101 )............................................. Austropsyche acuta   sp. nov.

-. Gonopods each with mesal process no more than half length of harpagone, variably blunt or pointed apically; without small conical tubercle between mesal process and harpago ( Figs 61–62 View FIGURES 59–69 , 93 View FIGURES 84–101 ).................... Austropsyche ambigua   sp. nov.

5(3) Gonopods each with mesal process on coxopodite short, irregular in shape; sclerotised spines on phallus in ventral view straight; in ventral view, small rounded plate visible dorsal to gonopods, in lateral view apicomedial margin slightly produced ( Figs 63–65 View FIGURES 59–69 , 88–89 View FIGURES 84–101 )........................................................ Austropsyche bifurcata (Kimmins)  

-. Gonopods each with mesal process on coxopodite short, conical and apically acute in ventral view; sclerotised spines on phallus in ventral view curved; apex of phallus membranous, sometimes protruded; in ventral view membranous plates lateral to gonopods mesally produced posterad, in lateral view forming irregular midapicolateral lobe ( Figs 53–55 View FIGURES 49–58 , 84–87)......................................................................................
