The genera of Notonemouridae are assigned to three phylogenetic groups. The New Zealand fauna now consists of twenty-six species in six genera, of which eight species are here described as new. Keys to genera and species are given. Information is given on habitats, distribution, endemism, phylogeny, and systematics in the family. Methods of collecting and preparation of specimens are outlined. Drawings are included of genitalia, wings, and other parts of diagnostic value, as well as a number of habitus studies. The distribution of collection localities is mapped for each species. Copulation in Notonemoura is described and illustrated.
