Changes in the third printing coming late July

CSIRO Publishing has sent a revised manuscript to the printers, which will be the third printing (with corrections). It won't get everything, as changes come through all the time, notably Australian Omoedus spp. changing back to Zenodorus and new names for Araneidae Zygiellinae in Bob Kallall's revision which appeared early June 2018. These changes are listed further below.
