Additional remains of the marine pachycormiform fish, Australopachycormus hurleyi Kear, 2007, have been located in collections of the Queensland Museum from the Early Cretaceous (Late Albian) Toolebuc Formation of the Eromanga Basin, near Boulia in central western Queensland. The specimens significantly extend knowledge of the neurocranium, especially relating to the morphology of the orbital area, maxilla and mandible. The additional specimens show evidence of predation, with one possibly also having been regurgitated in a partially digested state
