Abstract

Although the exertions of Robert Brown have procured for
us an extensive acquaintance with the flora of New Holland,
not merely with respect to individuals, but also in a general
and universal sense; although we are acquainted with
the fauna of different classes of mammalia and birds, yet
our knowledge of the entomological fauna of this part
of the world, viewed as a whole, is extremely limited.
Dr Wilhelm Ferdinand Erichson (26 November 1809 - 18 December 1848) was a German entomologist. This paper is written about insect species collected at Woolnorth in Tasmania, Australia and is translated by Miss S. A. Fogg.
