Probably few Tasmanian insects have been so generally neglected by students as those usually small but plentiful forms which comprise the order Copeognatha or Psocoptera. The Australian and New Zealand species have been studied by MacLachlan, Enderlein, and Tillyard, but the literature contains only isolated references to Tasmanian forms. Among the species dealt with in the present paper are two archaic forms of more than ordinary interest. One of them closly resembles Sphwaeropsocus kunowi Hagen, a fossil species found in Baltic amber, whilst the other is a member of the rare and primitive family, Lepidopsocidae.
