Revisiting the Psocoptera (Insecta) of Barrow Island, Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Courtenay Smithers recorded five species of Psocoptera on Barrow Island in 1982. Since then, repeated surveys have been conducted as part of environmental impact assessments associated with the Gorgon Project development on Barrow Island. This baseline information on invertebrates is to be utilised as a component of surveillance programs in support of the Gorgon Project's quarantine detection system. These additional surveys on the island have yielded a further 20 species of psocopterans, bringing the total fauna collected to 25 species. This includes the first Australian record of the synanthropic species 'Dorypteryx domestica' (Smithers).
