Species excluded from the New Zealand Licinni

Rembus zeelandicus Redtenbacher, 1868 was erroneously described as coming from Auckland, New Zealand. It is now known (Andrewes 1924) to be a northeast Asian species of Diplocheila Brullé (Ball, 1959).

The six Australian species of Dicrochile described by Laporte de Castelnau (1867) were all mistakenly listed from New Zealand in the Gemminger & Harold (1868) Catalogus Coleopterorum. They are all Australian endemics (Moore et al. 1987) that belong to the genus Stomatocoelus Macleay as here understood. They have never been found in New Zealand.

1 For convenience, the species of Pedalopia are arranged more or less from north to south, rather than alphabetically.
