Amenia longicornis (Malloch)  

As showninPart 1, the species comprises two fairly distinct geographic forms: an eastern one, found around the head of Spencer Gulf and north through the Flinders Ranges to the MacDonnell ranges of the Northern Territory, and a western one in places west of about 135° longitude. Although qualifying as geographic subspecies, I see no point in naming them formally.

Two specimens from the Flinders Ranges were reared from snails of the species Sinumelon hawkerana Solem   ( Camaenidae   ) (near Jonburgh, SouthAustralia, M. Newton, 27 May 1992)
