TitleThe Genus Diporochaeta (Oligochaeta Megascolecidae) in Queensland
JournalZoologische Verhandelingen
AbstractPerionychella is reassigned to Diporochaeta as a junior synonym. 9 new species are added to the 8 previously known Queensland species of Diporochaeta, all of which are redescribed, bringing the generic total for Australia to 77 named species. Distribution of the genus is disjunct, the Queensland records being restricted to the northeast, between latitudes 15° and 19°S, with the exception of a single morphologically very isolated species in the Bunya Mountains of southeast Queensland. The remainder of the genus occurs in Tasmania, Victoria, the Australian Alps in southern New South Wales and, a few species, in New Zealand. The genus is redefined and a key to Queensland species provided.
