Abstract

A new genus and three new species of Charopidae (Pinwheel Snails) from differing habitats in Queensland and New South Wales are described: Bindiropa irwinae gen. et sp. nov. from the Carnarvon Gorge Section of Carnarvon National Park, south-central Queensland; Stanisicaropa covidurnus sp. nov. from St Bees Island, mid-eastern Queensland; and Gyrocochlea occidentalis sp. nov. from the western Border Ranges, south-eastern Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales. An additional putative Gyrocochlea species from the Richmond Range, north-eastern New South Wales, represented by a single damaged shell, is figured but not described.
