Abstract
    Moorea zealandica, new genus and species, is described and illustrations of diagnostic features are presented. Based on, seta v absent on mentum, contiguous mesocoxal cavities, and galea with several setae only on mesal surface and apex with setae, Moorea zealandica is hypothesised to be a member of the tribe Liparocephalini. A cladistic analysis of the Liparocephalini based on 50 adult characters suggests that the genus Moorea belongs to the Liparocephalini.
