Harro, can you send the full reference for this paper? I need to add it to
manuscript I'm sending off in the next day or two.

It seems to be a Macquaria based on genetics, data aren't consistant yet,
it is most closely related to Macquarie and golden perch (the results flip

it is a neat little fish!
