Species Notes for this Location:
In Central Australia they are only known from a dam at Leigh Creek coal mine, on a tributary to Frome Creek (which drains directly to Lake Eyre).
Management Notes for this Location:
Efforts have been made to poison this population twice, however both have failed (Beat Odermatt pers. comm. In Unmack, 2003).
