Owing to the discovery that the well known Rhyphus
brevis, Walker, is a synonym of Macquart's R. dubius,
which was misplaced by the latter author with doubt in
the genus Chrysopilus (Leptida), and as Walker’s name
is now generally used in literature, it is necessary that an
early notification of this change of name be published.
This opportunity is taken to revise the Rhyphida
which family contains but one known species in Australia.
