Default other races?

Looking through the tau fluff and I noticed that some other races that are part of the empire are listed but don't have rules. The thraxians, greet, nicassar and nagi. The descriptions of them are very brief and i was wondering if any art isfloating around out there depicting them. I picture the greet as sort of like big cockroaches and the nagi seem pretty self-explanatory (psychic worms). I would like to maybe convert some of these other races to be "counts-as" units to diversify the look of my army. Thoughts? Pics?

I think they're there to open up options for conversions. Everyone agrees that the Naga are probably Space Lizardmen, though.

Space lizardmen? The codex fluff says they are a race of worms with mind control abilities that currently assist the ethereals. Anyway i have a concept going for some greet to count as fire warriors or pathfinders. Perhaps some Nagi could be ethereal guard?

The only conversions I've seen for them are Lizardmen. Up to whatever interpretation you want, though.

There's a wiki warhammer40k wiki. That has a bit more on some of the races with them

The wiki lists the following races:
Nicassar-psychic bear people
Tarellians- dog people
Demiurg-miners of some sort
Galg-frog people
Ji'atrix- some sort of psychic race
Morallion-auxiliaries of some kind
Hrenian-not much other than members of the empire
Ranghon-light infantry soldiers

The codex mentions a couple not listed on the wiki:
Thraxians-multi armed dudes
Greet-invertebrates of some kind
Nagi- psychic worms

I'm thinking the lizardmen conversions you saw were Galg, I picture the greet as oversized cockroaches/centipedes/potato bugs.
