Abstract

This paper reports the discovery of the estuarine bivalve species Potamocorbula faba at the archaeological site Ngarradj Warde Djobkeng in Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory. Although presently widespread and abundant in southeastern Asia, this species is not known to be living anywhere in northern Australia today, and neither is it known as a pre-Holocene fossil. Therefore, it must have made a temporary incursion into western Arnhem Land between 3300 and 3600 years ago.
