Spermatophores have been found in eight species of Phasmida not previously known to produce spermatophores. Two of these are from the subfamilies Bacteriinae and Necrosciinae which have not previously been recorded as producing spermatopores. A spermathophore of Haaniella saussurei Kirby is illustrated.
