Scientific Name Notes:Ratabulus diversidens was originally thought to occur on both the east and west coasts of Australia. The west coast population was described as R. fulviguttatus by Imamura & Gomon (2010) and the east coast population has been split into two species, namely R. diversidens (Townsville, Qld south to Lakes Entrance, Vic.) and R. ventralis (Qld only: Townsville south to Noosa).
