J.K. Lowry, P.B. Berents and R.T. Springthorpe


The character list which forms the basis of this study was developed from various keys to Australian species of melitids in J.L. Barnard (1972). We are particularly indebted to Pam Brown, who gathered all of the literature for this study. We thank the Records of the Australian Museum for permission to reproduce the pictures in this study. We thank Mike Dallwitz and Eric Zurcher for their Delta support and Peter Firminger and Russ Weakly for web support. We appreciate financial support from ABRS to assist in the development of this database.
