Not bird related but Syd has today mentioned Australian amphipods (invertebrates).

In Victoria we have a suite of native amphipod species, some of which have been formally recognised as threatened and are on the list of threatened taxa under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act.

I have further information regarding the conservation of the following amphipod taxa should anyone be interested.

Austrogammarus australis - Dandenong Freshwater Amphipod
Austrogammarus haasei - Sherbrooke Amphipod

1. The Museum of Victoria has an interesting site on these fascinating little creatures, well worth a look:

A quote from the site...'There are almost 200 families and tens of thousands of species of amphipods'

2. And also the Australian Museum in Sydney:

cheers, Martin
