parapulchella" cells have 42 chromosomes in the diploid state. Males of the species have a heteromorphic pair of chromosomes (a pair of two different ones), termed XY, and the females have a pair of same XX chromosomes. The microsatellite (AGAT) is strongly repeated near the Y chromosome centromere. The Y chromosome also contains the (AC) motif, whereas the X chromosome does not. (AC) also shows up on another two pairs of small and large chromosomes.

Mount Taylor is listed on the Register of the National Estate as the most prominent landmark in southern Canberra, and together with nearby Oakey Hill, Wanniassa Hills and Isaacs Ridge, is valued as a key part of the landscape of Canberra. It contains one of the most significant populations known of the nationally endangered Pink-tailed Legless Lizard, "
parapulchella" and a nationally endangered plant, the Small Purple-pea "Swainsona recta".

Two more nuclear tests were conducted in the Monte Bello Islands as part of Operation Mosaic in 1956, the detonations taking place on Alpha and Trimouille Islands. By the 1980s the radioactivity had decayed to the point where it was no longer hazardous to the casual visitor, but there were still radioactive metal fragments containing cobalt-60, the remains of "Plym". A 2006 zoological survey found that the wildlife had recovered, and that the "
rostrata", the legless lizard discovered by Hill, was not extinct. Today, the Monte Bello Islands are a park. Visitors are advised not to spend more than an hour per day at the test sites, or to take relics of the tests as souvenirs.
