About this book

The group of Australian Recent populations forming the subgenus Cymbiolacca, formerly named the "pulchra Complex" is revised. Five new valid species are recognized: C. (Cymbiolacca) cracenta McMichael, 1963, C. (Cymbiolacca) complexa Iredale, 1924, C. (Cymbiolacca) houarti Poppe, 1985, C. (Cymbiolacca) moretonensis Bail & Limpus, 1998 and C. (Cymbiolacca) subelongata Bail & Limpus, 1998. Two new subspecies are distinguished: C. (Cymbiolacca) pulchra flindersi ssp. nov and C. (Cymbiolacca) intruderi rowseorum ssp. nov.

The species C. (Cymbiolacca) excelsior Bail & Limpus, 1998 is downgraded to subspecies. The type of C. (Cymbiolacca) pulchra (Sowerby I, 1825) and its locus typicus are defined again.
