Excerpt from Proceedings of the Royal Society of Victoria, Vol. 29: Part I. And II.; Issued October, 1916, and March, 1917 In a paper published many years ago1 I have described a number of new Australian Hemiptera communicated to me by Mr. Charles French, of Melbourne. Of the material sent to me bv Mr. French I had retained for further study a number of species, partly belonging to difficult groups, and among them I have found some forms which are undescribed and of which descriptions are given in the present paper. One new species of Myodochidae belongs to a genus hither known only as Palearctic, and of the three new genera of this family here described two are remarkable by showing a decidedly closer affinity to Palearctic than to indo-australian genera, but this is probably due to our imperfect knowledge of the Myodochidae of the Oriental and Australian regions, the members of this family being of small size and much neglected bv collectors.
