It appears that little, if any, research on the taxonomy of the Hedana species of Australia has been done since the original work by L. Koch in the mid-1800s. Almost no
Australian species have been formally named as yet and there is a commonly held belief that Hedana specimens are a green colour. However, the above images suggest that at
least a few Hedana species may be brown in colour.
