endemic to a single state or province

Comments: Typhlogastrura are normally associated with guano or scat although they are also found on rotted wood. They are often found on pool surfaces, but these are almost certainly trapped there accidentally (Christiansen and Wang 2006).
Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.
