A Tasmanian species, which was described in an
earlier paper but wrongly assigned there to
Actaecia euchroa Dana, is named as Actaecia
thomsoni, n. sp. Differences between A. euchroa
and A. thomsoni are listed. The presence of
pseudotracheae in the pleopoda of A. thornsoni,
and of A. pallida Nicholls and Barnes, is confirmed.
Variations in the colour of specimens of A. euchroa
from New Zealand are noted.
