NOTE: Since the Bergh description is incomplete and the type species is no longer available
there is no photo or proof of this species. All available photos are mearly guessing at the identification.
A recent paper describing 2 new species could not match the original description.
Bob Burn has seen the recent animals found in the Mooloolah River and has decided on Myja sp. 1 and Myja hyotan.
Until more work is done I stand by this.
