To continue building on the aglajids, here are some photos of another southeastern Australian species Melanochlamys queritor. I have not found it commonly in New South Wales. Both the animals illustrated here have been found in coralline turf on intertidal rock platforms, much like M. cylindrica in New Zealand.

Previously known from southern Australia, [Victoria to Hopetown, Western Australia], this is the first record from New South Wales.
