Deinacrida broughi, Buller, Trans. N.Z. Inst., vol. xxviii., p. 324 (1896).
I have not seen this species, but it appears to be near H. maori, as the four anterior femora are said to be free from
spines. It is, however, much larger, and has different colours. The length is 57mm.; of ovipositor, 19mm.; of hind tibia, 38mm.; of hind femur, 38mm. The colours are pale reddish-brown, with the head and edges of the pronotum dark.
Locality.— Mountainous districts of Nelson. Living in holes which it bores in the trunks of trees.
