Scientific Name Notes:The 'kagoshimensis complex' was coined by Poss & Eschmeyer, 1978 for an unresolved complex of several very closely related species from across Aust & SE Asia, so kagoshimensis is probably not actually a valid name for the (one) species in question we have in Australia. Until a more detailed revision is published there will be no formal name for this species.
