Abstract:

Six species of Gastrocopta have been identified from the Pilbara region, Western Australia, by means of comparative analyses of shell and mtDNA variation. Three of these species, G. hedleyi, G. larapinta and G. servilis, have been recorded in the Pilbara for the first time. Gastrocopta sp. CW1 is probably new to science and might be endemic to the region. By contrast, G. hedleyi, G. larapinta and G. mussoni are shown to be widespread.
