This information is based upon various sources, but no personal knowledge. I am indebted to the late Alan Horowitz for his compilation, and to Dr. J. Pachut. A number of species assigned to the genus Lunularia, from North America and Europe, have been here assigned to Lunulites, from the viewpoint that the genus Lunularia sensu stricto may be largely restricted to Australia. However, a lot more work is needed. Many of the species described in the 19th Century may remain forever unrecognisable.
I would be grateful for corrections to, or critical reviews of this information. This is not a 'final' version (an impossible ideal), but a working document.
