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.
