The endemic stonefly genus Thaumatoperla is iconic and unique to the Victorian alpine areas and one of the top predators in alpine streams. Two of the species T. alpina (Bogong High Plains) and T. flaveola (Mt Buller-Mt Stirling) are listed on the FFG Act 1988 with T. alpina also listed as endangered on the EPBC Act 1999.
