We got some, but we were some ways upstream of the mouth. The Townsville
ones tend to be in the estuary, or extreme lower reaches as I understand it.
I don't especially remember then being out of the ordinary, but then again I
don't tend to look real close at them in the field. Specimens are in the
Australian or Queensland Museum. Can't be of more help than that I'm afraid.
