Amaryllis Haswell  

Amaryllis Haswell, 1879: 253   .– Haswell, 1880: 31.– Haswell, 1882: 227.–Stebbing, 1888: 698.– Della Valle, 1893: 781.– Stebbing, 1906: 23.– Pirlot, 1933: 122 (in part, part = Vijaya Walker, 1904   ).–J.L. Barnard, 1969: 320.– Ledoyer, 1986: 717 (in part, part = Pseudamaryllis   ).–Barnard & Karaman, 1991: 460.

Diagnosis. Mouthpart bundle subconical. Mandible palp article 3 without A3-seta. Pereopod 4 coxa with anterior and posterior margins subparallel. Pereopods 5–7 with distal articles elongate. Uropod 3 rami lanceolate; without plumose setae in male and female; outer ramus 1-articulate.

Type species. Amaryllis macrophthalma Haswell, 1879   , selected by Pirlot, 1933.

ical area: from southeastern South America, through southern and eastern Africa, the Red Sea, Indonesia, New Zealand and all of southern Australia (see Fig. 1). Where the material has been illustrated or described we can, with our current knowledge of the Australian species of Amaryllis   , exclude the non-Australasian records from A. macrophthalma   . We are also convinced they do not belong to the genus Amaryllis   (see Remarks for Erikus   ).

Amaryllis   apparently occurs only in the Australasian area . Within Australia, it has not been recorded north of 30°S on either the east or west coast ( Fig. 2)   .

Distribution. Currently confirmed only from Australia.

Species composition. Amaryllis   contains 13 species: A. brevicornis Haswell, 1879   ; A. carrascoi   n.sp.; A. croca   n.sp.; A. dianae   n.sp.; A. kamata   n.sp.; A. keablei   n.sp.; A. macrophthalma Haswell, 1879   ; A. migo   n.sp.; A. moona   n.sp.; A. olinda   n.sp.; A. quokka   n.sp.; A. philatelica   n.sp. and A. spencerensis   n.sp.

Remarks. The genus Amaryllis   (almost exclusively as A. macrophthalma   ) has been recorded from a wide geograph-
