Paralimnadia urukhai ( Webb & Bell, 1979)  

Limnadia urukhai Webb & Bell, 1979: 239   –244; Brtek, 1997:58 (list) Paralimandia urukhai   .— Rogers et al., 2012: 838 (list)

Type material. Holotype: Queensland, near Stanthorpe, Sow and Pig Rocks , 26 March 1978, J.A. Webb & G.D. Bell, QM W7499.  

Diagnosis. Webb & Bell (1979) state ‘bisexual, male and female carapaces similar, with evenly curved dorsal margins, large larval valves, and up to 10 growth lines, maximum size 6.7 mm by 4.3 mm; 15–16 pairs of legs; 2 segments in sixth endite (sic: endite V) on first pair of claspers almost equal in length; no spine on lower distal angle of telson.’ To this I add: cercopod divided midlength by a spine, and a few short cercopod setae or spines.

Remarks. This species occurs in rock pools (pan gnammas) in the Granite Belt of southeast Queensland and adjacent northern New South Wales ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ). It has a wider distributon than reported by Webb & Bell (1979) and preliminary studies suggest it could be a species complex ( Schwentner et al. 2015). Molecular and accompanying morphological studies are in progress.
