Abstract

The present paper describes seventeen new species of
Asilidae("Robber Flies"), eight of these being from Western
Australia, and nine from Tasmania. The West Australian
species were collected by Mr. G. H. Hardy, of the Tasmanian
Museum, the Tasmanian species by myself. New genera are
also proposed for two previously undescribed species.
Leptogaster, Meig.
Of this genus five Australian species have been previously
described; four new species are now added, three of these
being from Tasmania, and one from Western Australia. As
the species belonging to this genus are somewhat difficult to
determine, I am giving a table showing the distinguishing
characters of all the Australian species.
