Abstract

Eulimnadia rivolensis occurs across the southern Australian mainland and Tasmania but has not been collected in Victoria since 1910 and in south-east South Australia since 1975, where its former habitat has been destroyed. E. rivolensis is redescribed from syntype material and transferred to Paralimnadia. This species lacks a subcercopod spine and has other less characteristic features of Paralimnadia. Eulimnadia palustera Timms, 2015 is a junior synonym based on egg morphology and some characteristics of the telson.
