Other material examined. QUEENSLAND: 1♂, Bellenden Ker summit, 17°16'S 145°52'E, 28 Aug–8 Oct 1991, GBM & Janetzki ( S20783 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   . 1♀, Bellenden Ker Range Summit TV Stn., Oct–Dec 1982, 1560 m, S. Montague, rainforest ( S 30776 View Materials ) (both QM)   .

Diagnosis. Can be separated from Oz. affinis   by the tarsal rod being elongate with keyhole shaped opening ( Fig. 6d View Fig and Davies, 1986; figs 28 & 38), by the male palpal trochanter having a single stridulatory spine and by the female epigynum having fused gonopore openings ( Fig. 12c–d View Fig ); from Oz. kroombit   by the male cymbium lacking apophyses and the gonopore openings on the female epigynum being fused ( Fig. 12c–d View Fig ); from Oz. aquilonaria   by the form of the MA and RTA, which lacks a prominent pointed dorsal apophysis, of the male palp ( Fig. 12a–b View Fig ) and by the posterior margin of the fused sclerotized gonopore openings of the female epigynum being incised ( Fig. 12c View Fig ).

Description. Male. Measurements: BL 4.0, CL 2.25, CW 1.50, PLE 0.27, PME 0.15 (QM, S 1366). Female. Measurements: BL 4.25, CL 2.25, CW 1.40, PLE 0.30, PME 0.17 (QM, S1365). For morphological description see species diagnosis and generic description.

Distribution. Known only from the summit of Mt Bellenden Ker in North East Queensland. ( Fig. 26 View Fig ).

Remarks. The view of the RTA illustrated by Davies (1986, fig. 7) is dorsal rather than retrolateral as stated.
