The monogonont rotifer Lecane shieli is recorded for the first time from Australia (Bora Channel in the Macquarie Marshes, New South Wales: 30.65872° S /147.53144° E). Until recently, L. shieli was known only from Thailand, where the species was first described. This Australian record of a Thai ‘endemic’ is interesting in considering possible dispersal and biogeographical distribution.
