First record of Thermosbaenacea (Crustacea) from the Southern Hemisphere: a new species from a cave in tropical Western Australia

GCB Poore and WF Humphreys

Invertebrate Taxonomy 6(3) 719 - 725
Published: 1992

The discovery is consistent with a very ancient origin of the order and distribution of the genus by plate movements following the breakup of Pangaea.
