Type specimens. Holotype, F, AUSTRALIA, Queensland: Hinchinbrook Is., 9.ix. 1956, G. F. Bornemissza, on Aulacocyclus edentulus MacLeay  (N 1952318). In SAMA. Paratypes, 9 F, 5 M, same data as holotype (N 1952319 -N 1952231). In SAMA.

Other specimens. Queensland: M, Hampton, 3.x. 1956, G. F. Bornemissza, on A. edentulus  (N 1952333); 2 M, Mt Tambourine, no date, A. M. Lea (N 1952334 -N 1952335); M, Atherton, 28.iii. 1945, D. J. Collis, on passalid (N 1952336). New South Wales: M, Wilson’s Downfall near Tenterfield, 8.viii. 1956, G. F. Bornemissza, on A. edentulus  (N 1952337). In SAMA. Queensland: F, 2 M, Mt Baldy, 8.iv. 1995, D. E. Walter ( S 74133View Materials - 35); M, Atherton, Gadgarra, 28.i. 1996, O. Seeman ( S 74136View Materials - 38); F, M, Cape Tribulation, Oliver Ck, 30.i. 1996, O. Seeman ( S 74139View Materials); M, Mossman Gorge, 31.i. 1996, O. Seeman ( S 74140View Materials). All from Aulacocyclus fracticornis Blackburn  and deposited in QM.

Diagnosis. Both sexes: idiosoma  810–880 long; anterior hyaline projection does not extend past CxI; exopodal patterning between CxII –III striped; pedofossae III present, IV absent; seta h 1 with 5–6 barbs; distal spine-like process on palp femur minute or absent; one non-filamentous excrescence ribbon-like, the other a short serrated blade; femur III and IV with large lamellae. Female: sternal shield smooth; seta st 1 19–25 long, shorter than base of tritosternum; setae st 2 -st 4 <5 long; sternogynial shield smooth, anterior margin straight. Male: tetartosternum absent, presternal processes articulated with sternoventral shield, symmetrical, with pointed ends, directed inwards and almost touching each other; sternoventral shield (anterior of genital opening) smooth; seta st 1 30–35 long; genital opening placed between CxII –III, flanked by 2 pores.

Remarks. The “Tambourine” specimens (N 1952334 -N 1952335) are not N. canestrinii  ; however, the specimens are in such poor condition that no more than their misidentification can be confirmed. “Tambourine” is a misspelling of Mount Tamborine in Southeast Queensland. The holotype is in very poor condition; all paratypes are in poor condition except for one male from Atherton (N 1952336).
