Concerning message #21949:


Sorry I didn't spot the entries under Tambja sp.4. What we can establish by putting the Solomon Islands sightings (Crowley, Potter & Johnson) together, is a record of Tambja sp. 4, poss T. olivaria, on several islands in the Solomons. Potter & Johnson's on Guadacanal, Crowley's in the Western Province and the ones I sent in from the Russell Islands. I also found one in the Florida Islands a few weeks before but didn't manage to get a decent photo. Assumption of course is that they are all the same species. They certainly all look very similar.
