In the following notes I have adopted the method of
description employed by Rainbow and Pulleine in their excellent
account of Australian Trap-door Spiders (D), and
can only hope that my descriptions will be as clear as theirs
are. Family AVICULARIDlE.
Sub-Family DIPLURINlE.
Genus Chenistonia (Hogg).
Chenistonia trevallynia, sp. nov.
The genus Chenistonia was established by H. R. Hogg, in
1901, for the reception of two species which he found
at Macedon, Victoria. Since that date, five other Australian
species have been described, making a total of seven.
The following notes deal with a Tasmanian spider of
this genus. The writer believes that it is a new species, and
also that it is the first member of the genus Chenistonia to
be recorded from this State. The name, Chenistonia trevallynia,
is suggested, from the locality where the specimens
were obtained.
