  • Note: The collector, Arthur Lea, was Government Entomologist of Tasmania beginning in 1899 (Marks 1991: 207). Although Lea was based in Hobart in southern Tasmania, he was an active field naturalist and presumably collected A. leae on a trip to the north of the island sometime between 1899 and 1910, because A. leae is not found in the south.
