Genus Chaetoceras Handschin.
Chaetoceras pritchardi Womersley.
This species is very common in the Urewera country from Lake Waikaremoana to the Waihui Gorge, numbers of specimens being taken from the Waihui Gorge, altitude 1,600 feet, the Hopuruahine Gorge, altitude 2,500 feet, near edge of Lake Waikaremoana, altitude 2,050 feet. In all cases the insects were amongst the debris on the forest floor.
With the exception of that from the Manawatu district, the material described in this paper has been collected by the author. For the Manawatu specimens I am indebted to Mr. D. K. Ross, of Wellington, to whom I take this opportunity of expressing my thanks.
