Sam,

The type locality of Abarenicola assimilis devia is Shoreham, Victoria, Australia, and of A. a. haswelli is Burnie, Tasmania.

Those were erected by the king of arenicolids, G P Wells, who, my memory aided by wikipedia believes was son of H G Wells, contemporary & colleague of another famed biologist, Julian Huxley, who, inter alia, wrote a paper on Sabella regeneration - must have a look at it sometime.
