L J Cookson, J E Barnacle, C N McEvoy

After 16 years at Port Douglas, two double-treated Pinus radiata piles were in excellent condition, a CCA-treated Pinus elliottii pile was in good condition other than for a confined streak of teredinid attack, while two CCA-treated and two untreated turpentine piles were moderately to severely attacked by Sphaeroma in the tidal zone. The marine borers collected were Sphaeroma terebrans, Martesia striata, Lyrodus sp., Teredo sp., Limnoria unicornis, Limnoria indica and Limnoria insulae.
