Second species of Mangkurtu (Spelaeogriphacea) from north-western AustraliaWA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 1 years agoABSTRACT – A new species, Mangkurtu kutjarra, is described, the second in this genus from Australia, and fourth living in the Order Spelaeogriphacea in the world. It occurs in a calcrete aquifer very close to that in which its congener lives in the Pilbara, Western Australia. Spelaeogriphacea, like Thermosbaenacea are thought to be relicts of a more widespread shallowwater marine Tethyan fauna stranded in interstitial or ground-water environments during periods of marine regression.
