Kurtus gulliveri Castelnau 1878a: 233  (type locality, freshwater pond near the Norman River). Castelnau (1878a) described Kurtus gulliveri  from an unspecified number of specimens collected by T.A. Gulliver from a freshwater pond near the Norman River. He noted that the largest specimens are “a little over 4 inches long.” Le Danois (1963) noted that there are four syntypes in the MNHN, and an additional syntype is listed in the AMS (Eschmeyer et al. 2018). Ramsay & Ogilby (1886) also mentioned the AMS specimen in their redescription of the species, but gave the registration number as AMS B.9208 (vs B. 9209 in Eschmeyer et al. 2018). No MAMU types are listed by Stanbury (1969), or by any other authors. A single 67.5 mm SL (ca 81+ mm TL) specimen is in the collection (MAMU F.394). The old, external label for the specimen says “ KURTUS GULLIVERI  , Casteln. NORMAN RIVER”, which is repeated on a card inside the jar. The index card for the specimen says “ Kurtus gulliveri, Castl.  […] 1 sp. 3½″ Norman River”. We regard this specimen as an additional syntype of Kurtus gulliveri  .
