Sample sites on the northern down-current side of Heard Islands and on the western up-current side of the McDonald Islands contain a diverse range of taxonomic groups compared to all other sample sites. Benthic specimens obtained in rock dredges and sediment grabs show a range of invertebrate species that are likely endemic to the HIMI region.
