Abstract

Two recent captures and a sighting of Rankinia adelaidensis increase its recorded geographical distribution in a southerly direction. In accordance with other recent range extensions recorded south of the Swan River, it is probable that the geographical distributions for other species will be extended into the southern coastal plain with further surveys.
