2015-03-06"Chris. It seems from ALA that there is only one species. They have three sightings of Nambouria, one of which is mine. http://bie.ala.org.au/species/urn:lsid:biodiversity.org.au:afd.taxon:363b1d9e-1688-4de8-80b5-9a90420f6472#tab_classification My species name came from here, and this is supposed to originate from Australia. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1046/j.1440-6055.2002.00257.x/abstract;jsessionid=6DAF11C127AFF430F2ED2906408C9648.d03t02 With this uncertainty, I do not think we can assign a a species name.
