Abstract

Univariate and multivariate analyses of geographic variation in morphological characters indicate that Cyclodomorphus casuarinae consists of three geographically distinct taxa, which are recognised as species: one in Tasmania (C. casuarinae), a new species in the Australian Alps, and the third at lower altitudes in mainland Australia (C. michaeli). These three species are described, and data on habitat and reproduction provided for each.
