  • Biology
Two genera and two species are described as new. A key to related species is given and morphological strucwres are discussed in a phylogenetic perspective with other bembidiine groups. An ·'clytral chaetotaxy map," which is based on a broad study of tachyine beetles, is included. The distribution of each species is presented by locality records. Illustrations of important morphological characters are given as well as habitus drawings of two species. each representing the new genera

A new species of the tachyine genus Tasmanitachoides E RWIN from northern New South Wales , Australia
TLDR
The new species is closely related to T. angulicollis BAEHR, 1990, of eastern New South Wales, but is easily distinguished by longer and narrower elytra and narrower and more cordiform prothorax.

Coxal Cavities and the Classification of the Adephaga (Coleoptera)
TLDR
Because of extensive parallel and convergent evolution, no classification can be based on the variations of the coxal cavities of a single thoracic segment, as has been attempted in the past; but when used in combination with other characters, the coxa cavities do offer evidence about phylogeny.
