Distribution. Australia (ACT, NSW, SA (Kangaroo Island), TAS, VIC).

Remarks. Hull (1973: 239) was aware that the genus occurred in Western Australia, but misidentified his Western Australian specimens as M. sumptuosum   . An unverified record of this species from Queensland ( Evenhuis & Greathead, 1999) was followed in the literature by Rodrigues et al. (2017).
