The calanoid copepod Hemiboeckella searli Sars is recorded for the first time from New South Wales in Jibbon Lagoon, Royal National Park (34 degrees 05'12 '' S/151 degrees 09'53 '' E). This calanoid species is endemic to Australia and occurs in a narrow range of southern latitudes with a wide longitudinal distribution (Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia). Our record of H. searli in Jibbon Lagoon represents a similar to 250 km northerly latitudinal extension from previous records of the species in south-eastern Australia.
