Abstract

Leioproctus glendae Batley, n. sp., is described on the basis of two males and one female from western Queensland. The female has an unusually narrow fore basitarsus and mandibular structure not seen in other members of the genus, while the male terminalia do not closely resemble those of any other species group. The new species provides further demonstration of the variety of forms contained in the genus Leioproctus, and is described in order to assist future revision of this group.
