Thanks Mark, that makes more sense now. I guess this is the Victoria version of 'harrisoni'. Great that these are getting described.

Sorry you're right - I have mis-worded it. As this one is not yet named the only formally described species is 'harrisoni' I'm told this one will get 'done' later this year.

Mark, so this is not Paraterpna harrisoni? So that would be a second species in the genus? Trying to figure it out :-)
