    Excerpt from The Transactions of the Entomological Society of New South Wales, Vol. 2

    The small insects which compose this very natural family are distinguished from other Heteromera by the separation of their posterior legs, and by the extension of the anterior edge of the first segment of the abdomen in a (generally) triangular form. This appears the most certain distinction, though even this is shared to some extent by some of the Pediludes of La-Cordaire. In this family, however, the intercoxal plate when it exists is small and narrow. Although, therefore, it is separated by some authors, it is united to the Anthicidæ by others. I have met with but one member of the abnormal group, and therefore have not felt it necessary to separate it from the more numerous family to which it is certainly very closely allied.

    The Australian species of the Anthicidæ are more numerous than was at first supposed, M. Vereaux having reported that but 9 were found in Oceanie. Instead of 9, no fewer than 48, belonging to 5 different genera, are already known to me as Australian: of all but five I have had specimens under examination. I have been permitted to describe the species in the Museum collection, and in that of Mr. MacLeay. So that together with my own collected at Paramatta, and those received from Gawler in South Australia from my friend Mrs. Kreusler, my list is at least a good instalment, although eventually the number of species may be at least doubled. Mr. Masters collected several species during his late visit to Western and South Australia, while Queensland is represented by several elegant species received by Mr. MacLeay from Port Denison. From Victoria, I have not as yet had any specimens.

    Of the Australian species some have a very extensive range, indeed the Anthicus floralis is common to Australia and Europe, and several are, to judge by the descriptions, almost identical with species from the Cape of Good Hope.
