Abstract

A synopsis is given, with keys provided for identification, of the 40 species of Neuroptera known from Tasmania and the Bass Strait Islands. Nine families are represented; the Australian mainland families Neurorthidae, Berothidae, Psychopsidae, Nemopteridae and Ascalaphidae have not been recorded. A family-level key to larvae is given.Notes on the biology and distribution of all species are provided.Endemism is low, and only two species, Kempynus longipennis (Walker) and Dictyochrysa latifascia Kimmins, are believed to be restricted to the State; most other species are widespread in southeastern Australia or more widely distributed.
