Type material examined

Syntype female of P. turneri   (on slide, BMNH), labeled: 1. " Palaeoneura Turneri   female (Type) Waterh. Mt. Wellington, 2300 ft., S. Tasmania, 22.3.1914, 5.1545 [ BMNH type number, in red ink] R. E. Turner "; 2. "Type"; 3. "Mt. Wellington, S. Tasmania. 22 Mch. 1913"; 4. " 2,300 ft. R. E. Turner 1913-212.". The specimen is in fair condition but uncleared, mounted laterally on a slide, and lacking F3–F6 and clava of one of the antenna and F5, F6, and clava of the other antenna, and also missing some leg segments   .

Redescription

FEMALE. Body and appendages mostly dark brown but legs (except distal tarsomeres) brown; antenna ( Fig. 84 View FIGURES 84–86 ) with scape longer than pedicel or any funicle segment; F1 slightly longer than pedicel and subequal in length to F2 and F4, F3 and F6 slightly shorter, F5 the shortest, and F6 the widest funicle segment; longitudinal sensilla only on F4 (1) and F6 (2), clava large, about as long as combined length of F4–F6, with 9 longitudinal sensilla (one of the apical ones much shorter than the others); scutellum with a row of frenal foveae; forewing ( Fig. 85 View FIGURES 84–86 ) about 2.9 x as long as wide, with about 4 rows of setae behind marginal vein; longest marginal cilia at most 1/4 greatest forewing width; petiole extremely swollen (1.2–1.3 x as long as wide), dorsally with numerous minute setae; ovipositor about 4/5 length of gaster, barely exserted beyond gastral apex (by about 1/20 of its own length); ovipositor length: metatibia length 1.2–1.3:1.

Description

MALE. Similar to female except for normal sexually dimorphic features such as antenna (all flagellar segments longer than scape), genitalia ( Fig. 86 View FIGURES 84–86 ), and the following. Forewing about 3.0 x as long as wide, with longest marginal setae significantly longer than in female (1/2–3/5 greatest forewing width); petiole not as swollen as in female (1.7–1.8 x as long as wide).
