In his works Fabricius described many Australian and New Zealand insects brought back by Captain Cook's around -the-world voyages

Fabricius was one of the most famous pupils of Linnaeus. He greatly increased the knowledge of entomology and gained a wide reputation abroad. 'In accordance with his new fundamental characters he changed the Linnaean names into... Rhyngota (Hemiptera)...' (Smith, History of Entomology p. 111).
