Origin and Scope

Guide to authors

Australian Entomologist continues the journal originally founded as Australian Entomological Magazine by Max Moulds in 1974. It was passed to the Entomological Society of Queensland in 1988 and was renamed in 1994. It is devoted primarily to papers (of up to 20 printed pages) and short notes on the insects and related fauna of Australia (and associated islands) and neighbouring territories east of Wallace's Line, such as Sulawesi, the Moluccas, New Guinea, New Zealand and islands of the southwestern Pacific. Papers from territories west of Wallace's Line, such as the remainder of Indonesia and Malaysia, may be considered if deemed of relevance to the Australian fauna. Papers on the biology of insects of any order are especially welcomed and the Journal has a well-established emphasis on the taxonomy, biology and distribution patterns of Australian butterflies. All papers will be forwarded to two referees and the editor reserves the right to reject any paper considered unsuitable. Papers of a purely economic or statistical nature are rarely accepted.
