Stimulator consetti Iredale, 1944
Original name: Stimulator consetti Iredale, 1944. Iredale, T. 1944 The “Gundlachia” puzzle. Australian Zoologist 10: 290.
Type locality: Harding Ranges, Western Australia.
Biology unknown but presumably on wood and stones, in streams and ponds.
‘Spring, 8 miles west of Munja Station, Harding Ranges, WA’.
Known only from the type locality. A very narrow oblong shaped shell with a prominent septum which stretches two thirds the length of the underside of the shell. The relationships of this taxon to Australian species of Ferrissia has to be tested but are presumably close although it differs in having a slightly smaller and narrower shell.
