Tullbergia australica Womersley, 1933
Protullbergia salmoni Bagnall, 1947
Figures 5-9 are drawn from Bagnall's paratypes of P. salmoni and show that the characteristic body structures of Bagnall's species are so similar to those of T. australica Womersley that it is impossible to seperate these two species. The PAO of Bagnall's specimens have 55-63 tubercles and the SO Ant III agree exactly with that of Womersley's species with the third sense rod on the opposite side from the pair, and fully exposed. Womersley's name published in 1933 must therefore take priority.page 3
