Abstract

In 1927 the Trustees of the Australian Museum kindly sent me four types of Oribata lamellata Rainbow for study.  In 1929 I received the remaining specimens. Eight of the latter have been recorded, and I now proceed to report on the last specimens, which are Udetaliodes funafutiensis Jacot. To summarise this investigation, the type material comprised U. hawaiiensis wakensis Jacot, nine specimens; U. funafutiensis, five specimens; U. lamellatus, two specimens. Theoretically I should have restricted the specimens of U. h. wakensis as types of O. lamellatus, but could not guess they were so abundant from the first lot received. The original description of the pseudostigmatic organs and the dimensions do not fit U. h. wakensis. Thus, the original description must have been based on the larger specimens, probably U. funafutiensis.
