Abstract

Driftwood was collected from Stuart Creek, North Queensland, to examine the relationship between the wood-boring isopod, Sphaeroma terebrans (Isopoda: Sphaeromatidae), and the wood-boring mollusc, Bankiaaustralis (Bivalvia: Teredinidae). Broadly non-overlapping distributions in individual pieces of driftwood were found for S. terebrans and molluscan wood-borers at the study site.
