Posting this recipe for the ZWT Australia which I found at Here is what was stated: "The Moreton Bay bug (Thenus orientalis), also known as the Bay lobster, is a species of slipper lobster found throughout the waters of Australia's north coast. If you don't have Moreton Bay bug you can use lobster, redclaw, or marron in this recipe."
