  Comment: Status: Common  
    Comments: Dickman et al. (1988) first showed that A. stuartii in E New South Wales is actually divided into two quite distinct species: A. stuartii north of about 35°S, and an undescribed species mainly south of this latitude. The new species was not described for another ten years (Dickman et al., 1998). The two species are sympatric at Kioloa, New South Wales, and other places
