Abstract

This paper seeks to correct the erroneous taxonomy associated with the current understanding of the Altivasum flindersi (Verco, 1914) complex based on type revision, morphological differences and geographic separation. Structurally, there are three distinct species that can be differentiated, Altivasum flindersi (Verco, 1914), A. typicum Hedley, 1916 and A. profundum sp. nov. Geographically, these species are not all sympatric, with A. typicum restricted to shallower waters, at depths around 20-180 m off the south Western Australian coast, whereas A. profundum is located at the edge of the South Western Australian continental shelf, and A. flindersi is found off the coast of the Great Australian Bight at similar depths to A. typicum. There is an overlap in distribution between A. typicum Hedley, 1916 and A. flindersi (Verco, 1914) on the western side of the Great Australian Bight where they are often associated with similar habitats.
