Abstract

Studies on the genus Extatosoma Gray 1833 have revealed that there are two valid Australasian species represented by Extatosoma tiararum tiaratum, Extatosoma tiaratum bufonium stat. n., Extatosoma popa popa, and Extatosoma popa carlbergi stat. n. A lectotype has been designated for Extatosoma bufonium. The male of Extatosoma popa popa is described for the first time. Adults (including differently shaped female specimens) and eggs of the two Extatosoma species are figured for comparison. Variation within species is discussed, which includes size, color, degree of spination, shape of legs and expansions on abdominal segments. A literature review and summary of distribution records are provided.
