Stilbomyella Malloch


Genus Stilbomyella Malloch  

The genus was hitherto known from the Moluccas to New Britain. As predicted by Crosskey (1965), it does occur in Australia as well, and I describe below two new species from North Queensland. One closely resembles the New Guinean S. gloriosa (Walk.) (= S. nigrocostalis (Doleschall)   , synonymy by Kurahashi (1989 ». The other is more distinct, but is, I think, best placed in this genus.
