What was your source, Tim? I know Guy Wrinkle offered these once. Does anyone know who originally offered them (assuming Guy did not dig them himself)? I'm hoping there might be some way to clear up the issue with Aus being nowhere near the "new southern cape" locality where the more recent offerings of sp Aus are claimed to originate.
That being said, disjunct distributions are common enough (especially among coastal species) that it isn't impossible that the same species to be in Aus and much further south. California has multiple examples of species that likely spread over coastal terrain that emerged during past ice ages only to be trapped in widely separated pockets when sea levels rose again over the last 10K years. I think the range of latitude between Aus and "the southern Cape" is comparable.
