Concerning message #22053:
Following Gary Cobb's message about finding Philine angasi in southern Queensland I attach a couple of photos of this species from the other end of Australia. These animals were found at Simpsons Bay on Bruny Island in southern Tasmania. Simpsons Bay is a large tidal bay with large expanses of sand at low tide and also sea grass beds and we found a number of Philine angasi one year just under the sand. I think they are probably usually there but we only looked for them on one occasion. We shall be back there again in late December so will see if I can find them again.
Locality: Simpsons Bay, Bruny Island, Intertidal, Tasmania, Australia, February 1998, Intertidal. Photographer: Julie Marshall.

It will be interesting to hear if you find it again. The angle of your photos show the muscular, flattened, wedge-shaped body of this species very well.
