Bothriembryon tasmanicus (Pfeiffer, 1853) Family Bothriembryontidae. Tasmanian endemic. Found along the eastern and southern coasts of Tasmania never more than a few kilometres from the coast

10 km is the modern day record for furthest inland. There may have been further inland historically, but probably accidental translocations if so.
