Maoriella aucklandica

Chilenophilidae  : Chilenophilinae

This is probably the largest geophilid in New Zealand, up to 130 mm. Until 2017 it was known only by the original specimen collected in Bay of Islands in the late 1800's. In 2017 two further specimens were found in collections. As this species could be considered endangered only the original published site is mapped.
