The following paper deals with material collected in
both the north and the south of Tasmania. Six new species are
described. Among the Avicularidae, two very interesting
genera are represented, namely Migas and Hexathele, both of
which are typical New Zealand genera.
Sub-Family MIGINAE.
Genus Mig as (L. Koch).
The type of this genus is Migas paradoxus (L. Koch}
found in New Zealand.
It is therefore of interest to record the occurrence
of the genus Migas in Tasmania. The following description
deals with a new species from this State. The name Migas
nitens is suggested on account of the shiny appearance of
the cephalothorax.
Includes diagrams and physical description of species.
