New records. NEW SOUTH WALES: Kapala 78/27/01, 1, AM G15289 View Materials . — QUEENSLAND: Franklin 03/99/D10, 1, USNM 1008592; Franklin 03/ 99/D11, 13: 11, USNM 1008591 and 2, ZMUZ; Franklin 03/99/D14, 1, USNM 1008590; Cidaris I 43-2, 13, MTQ G56433 View Materials .

Types. The holotype of T. petterdi is NMV F41515 View Materials ; 2 of 8 additional paratypes areAM G12050 View Materials . Type Locality: 20 miles (= 32 km) northeast of Port Jackson , New South Wales, 457 m.

The holotype of T. multilobatus is USNM 81901 ; additional paratypes are split among USNM, MNHN, and AM. Type Locality: 5°25'56"N 120°03'39"E (off Tawi Tawi, Sulu Archipelago ), 507 m. GoogleMaps

Remarks. In my original description of T. multilobatus Cairns, 1989 , I noted that it was very similar and perhaps conspecific with T. petterdi but seemed to differ from the two paratypes by having wider costae than intercostae. Now that I have examined the holotype, I cannot find any basis to distinguish the two species. The holotype is unusual in that it has six pairs of S5 contained in only two systems for a total of 60 septa, but its costae are much wider than its intercostae and thus consistent with those described for T. multilobatus .
