Is anyone working on, or interested in Lysidice spp taxonomy worldwide?

I am just wondering what our New Zealand species really is (currently 
down as Lysidice ninetta). I also see our famous Prof W. B. Benham named 
a new variety of L. collaris from the Kermadec Islands just north of NZ. 
He usefully described it as "green in life". That's all he says about it!!!
