Paramenia angustifrons Crosskey  

I have seen two of the the three specimens from Highvale (14 miles NW of Brisbane ), Queensland, that Crosskey (1965) thought might represent a new species, largely on the basis of head shape. Using my own system of measurement (which I believe to be more accurate) I find little difference between these specimens and typical Paramenia angustifrons   , with which they cluster closely in a PCA ordination (not shown)   .

The range of the species is shown in Fig. 27 View Figure 27 . It seems restricted to the tropics and subtropics.
