I am grateful to Hermann L. Strack for entrusting his Expedition specimens to me, and for his patience in the delays writing up this work. I would like to thank Professor R. Cattaneo-Vietti (University of Genoa, Italy), C. Bryce (Western Australian Museum, Perth), J. Hinterkircher (Munich, Germany), and H. Debelius (Frankfurt, Germany) for their additional specimens and photographs, as well as Professor J. van Goethem for the material from Papua-New Guinea (Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Brussels, Belgium). Dr Wim Vervoort (Naturalis, Leiden, Netherlands) and Dr Geertje van Keulen (Biology, Swansea) are gratefully acknowledged for translating the Dutch notes on the collecting labels. Dr R. Willan (Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin, Australia) provided much advice and discussion, and kindly commented on the penultimate draft. Mr E. Kodiat (NudiPixel, Indonesia, www.nudi-pixel.html) and Dr B. Picton (Ulster Museum, Northern Ireland, U.K.) are thanked for the use of their photographs presented here. Two anonymous referees provided helpful and valuable comments, and for their time and patience, I am very grateful.
