Abstract

Two new species of terrestrial ostracods are described from Australia: Mesocypris australiensis n.sp., mainly recorded from near the east and south coast of eastern Australia, and M. tasmaniensis from south-west Tasmania. An additional species Scottia audax is also recorded from Queensland and New South Wales. Ecological notes on M. australiensis are given and the distribution of the terrestrial ostracods found only in the southern hemisphere is discussed.
