Abstract

A new genus and species of the subfamily Limnophilinae of the tipuloid family Limoniidae from Australia, Minipteryx robusta gen. nov. sp. nov., is described and illustrated. It is a rather large micropterous crane fly. Its affinities to existing genera remain unclear. The unique male was collected in late austral autumn at a small creek in alpine vegetation (elevation 1638 m a.s.l.) of Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales. A review is provided on the Australian Tipuloidea with reduced wings.
