Notes

  • Dr Leigh Winsor 6 August 2018
    Dr Leigh Winsor says

    Great photos of Parakontikia ventrolineata in its home territory in SE Queensland - your photos show all the key diagnostic features. Fr om there it has been spread via the nursery trade to NZ, Norfolk Island, USA, the UK and Europe. It often travels with "Caenoplana coerulea". It was originally described in 1892 from Brunnings Nursery Garden, St Kilda, Melbourne.
