Material examined. AM W. 43945, MI QLD 2345 (2); AM W. 44029, MI QLD 2355; AM W. 45037, MI QLD 2441; AM W. 45851, MI QLD 2363, photographed.

Remarks. The material collected from Lizard Island was compared with material previously identified as P. antipoda   and cited in Hutchings & Peart (2002). The species is widely distributed in Australia and has been recorded south from Broome, Western Australia around southern Australia and along the east coast to Heron Island, Queensland. This study extends the known distribution of the species to northern Queensland.

Habitat. The material from Lizard Island was collected from sandy to muddy bottoms at depths of 12– 21 m. This species was previously known from low water mark to 92 m, in sediments ranging from mud, silty sand to sand, but has also been reported from Posidonia   spp. seagrass beds.

Type locality. New South Wales: Port Jackson, Sydney, 33 ° 51 'S 151 ° 16 'E.
