Fastosarion comerfordae sp. nov., Gastropoda, Eupulmonata, Helicarionidae, new species, Queensland, Australia
A new semi-slug, Fastosarion comerfordae sp. nov., is described from the higher elevations of Eungella National Park in mid-eastern Queensland. Historically the species has been considered to be conspecific with F. superba (Cox, 1871) from Mt Dryander, mid-eastern Queensland. Differences in external animal features and penial anatomy are shown to separate the new species from F. superba.
