Editors' Notes
Locality: Data is derived from heading of list on p.191. This list mentions \Lithocampe n. sp." but not L. antarctica. As this is the only species of Lithocampe mentioned in the lists giving level and locality data, and as L. antarctica is the only species of Lithocampe described here it is assumed that this data refers to L. antarctica."[comment from RadWorld database]
