Abstract

The skeletal material of Wonambi naracoortensis has been re-examined, and used to test its phylogenetic relationships. The skeletal description, and the resulting data matrix, concentrates on characters that can be assessed by observation (on the associated material of Wonambi kept at the South Australian Museum). Macrostomatan affinities of Wonambi prove to be well supported. The taxon nests within Macrostomata, above Xenopeltis and Loxocemus.
