NotesEdit

  • Location: Australia
  • When Hunt (1985) synonymized the type species of Monoxyomma under Equitius, he automatically placed all species in Monoxyomma under Equitius. His statement that this species "should be placed in a new genus" (p.108) does not alter this. Therefore this species remains in Equitius until formally moved.

LiteratureEdit
