Remarks. Normplatnicka lamingtonensis   is a distinctive and widespread species, known from extreme south-eastern Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. The

morphology of specimens from the Border Ranges (the type locality) and southern Victoria is almost identical, although northern specimens possess only two peg teeth on the male cheliceral promargin, whereas specimens from Victoria possess three. This species was included in the molecular phylogenetic analysis of Rix et al. (2008) as “ Textricella   sp. VICBlack”.
