Holotype. Male. Luciola atra Pic.   FIJI: 18.00S, 178.00E labelled 1. Handwritten Luciola sp.   (Olivier dit); 2 handwritten Luciola atra   n s; 3 symbol; 4 printed black ink Ins. Fiji ( MNHN).

Holotype. Male. Luciola hypocrita Olivier   ). Male. FIJI: 18.00 S, 178.00E labelled 1. Handwritten on pink paper Luciola hypocrita   ; printed Ern. Oliv.; 2 printed SPECIMEN TYPICUM ORIGINALE AUCTORIS Ern. Olivier; 3. Handwritten Fidjie Ins. ( MNHN).

Diagnosis. Males known only from Fiji. Dark grayish dorsal colour with small posterolateral eye excavation; male LOs restricted to anterolateral plaques in V6 only; female flightless, with elytra covering much of the abdomen, coloured as for male; larvae dorsally deep grey with a tuft of fine white hairs at the apex of the tibiotarsus. Ballantyne (1968) redescribed males, and described a female and larva. Deheyn and Ballantyne (2009) characterized light production in the female and expanded the redescription of males, females and larvae. Larval characters are expanded in Table 11, Fig. 138 View FIGURES 128–138 and Fu et al. (2012b Figs 50, 51 View FIGURES 45–55 ).

Remarks. Branham’s (2010) reference to Luciola atra   (G. A. Olivier) larva was misspelled and is a reference to Lucidota atra   .
