Mesibov R - Zookeys (2011)

Bottom Line: The previously endemic Tasmanian genus Asphalidesmus Silvestri, 1910 is now known from 16°S to 43°S in eastern Australia, a north-south range of ca 3000 km.Asphalidesmus spp. throughout this range are very similar in overall appearance.Three of the new species are able to coil in a tight spiral.
