The story of lutaralipina (not tayatea) and Charles Gould (not William Buelow Gould) revealed!

Terry Mulhern’s paper on the misconceptions about the names given to lutaralipina – the giant freshwater crayfish – is published in the Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania, Volume 152 . The article can’t be downloaded for free for 12 months, but read all about in the University of Melbourne’s online magazine Pursuit or in Tasmania 40°South Magazine.
