I have listed this as significant as this is the first time this species has been reported on Canberra Nature Map. Thanks for the sighting.

Author's notes

Three shells and a live specimen found in rotten logs. Apologies for the poor quality photos. No flash!

Ive noticed that the gastropods are not classified to lower than class. Is that because the relevant diagnostic features are not presented, or the lack of a taxonomic expert in this area?

Thanks for the query.
We were getting the occasional worm or mollusc posted, so we decided to add them as a category instead of rejecting the sightings.
We do lack a taxonomic expert in this area and would be very pleased if we could find one.
