Conchostracan fossils are described for the first time from Triassic rocks in
Tasmania. Taxa present include Cyzicus (Lioestheria) spp., Palaeolimadia
(Palaeolimadia) cf. wianamattensis, P. (Palaeolimnadia) banksia n. sp., P.
(Palaeolimnadia) poatinis n. sp. other species of Palaeolimnadia and Palaeolimnadopis tasmanii n. sp. Two assemblages, one with Palaeolimnadia alone, the other with
Palaeolimnadia and Cyzicus. The latter assemblage suggests correlation with the Blina
Shale in Western Australia and with the Mangli Beds of India. The conchostracans
lived in small, transitory bodies of water
