From the north of Australia's Northern Territory, far northeastern Queensland and Torres Strait Islands, six new species of microcaddisfly are described: Hydroptila roperi sp. nov., Hellyethira khukri sp. nov., Oxyethira (Trichoglene) bamaga sp. nov., Oxyethira (Dampfitrichia) torresiana sp. nov., Orthotrichia pethericki sp. nov., and Orthotrichia becca sp. nov. Oxyethira torresiana is recorded from the northwest of York Peninsula and Badu Island in the Torres Strait as well as from Papua New… 


Hydroptila Dalman and Orthotrichia Eaton (Trichoptera: Hydroptilidae) from the islands of New Guinea and New Britain, with Observations on Relationships.
Nine new species of Hydroptila and fourteen of Orthotrichia are described from the islands of New Guinea and New Britain and relationships of species are discussed.
The hydroptilid tribes Hydroptilini and Orthotrichiini in New Guinea (Trichoptera : Hydroptilidae : Hydroptilinae)
Interest centres on unique aspects of the fauna, including a new monotypic genus, Missitrichia, gen. nov., and several species in Hellyethira with unusually asymmetric male genitalia; relationships and possible origins of these and other components of the New Guinea Hydroptilidae are discussed.
Long-distance aerial dispersal modelling of Culicoides biting midges: case studies of incursions into Australia
Where bluetongue virus is endemic, the concurrent use of an atmospheric dispersal model alongside existing arbovirus and Culicoides surveillance may help guide the strategic use of limited surveillance resources as well as contribute to continued model validation and refinement.
The Genera Oxyethira Eaton, Gnathotrichia Ulmer and Stemoxyethira Kimmins (Trichoptera:Hydroptilidae) in Australia
The number of non-endemic genera in the Australian Hydroptilidae is raised to five with the recognition of Oxyethira Eaton, in which four new species are described, and the referral of species to
Molecular phylogeny reveals the repeated evolution of complex male genital traits in the New Zealand moth genus Izatha (Lepidoptera: Xyloryctidae)
Overall, some male genital characters provided a good indication of species relationships; however, several parts of the complex male genitalia of Izatha show evidence of homoplasy and convergence highlighting the problems of using these traits in determining species relationships.
Reasoning an appcndicular and functional caddisfly genital terminology
The learning and understanding on genital terms in species descriptions is presented, which would help to utilise comparative phylogeny for higner level taxonomy and contribute to the understanding of functional and historical relations in biodiversity resource production and consumption.
