Abstract

The ensiferan family Anostostomatidae, formerly included in the Stenopelmatidae, or called the Henicidae or Mimnermidae is diagnosed and a world checklist of species is presented. Some longstanding nomenclatural problems are resolved through examination of most of the types and many new synonyms at the generic and species levels are presented. Two new monospecific genera are eastablished for species in Australia and New Zealand: Transaevum laudatum and Motuweta isolata
