Range Description

This species is endemic to the Northern Territory, Australia. Its historical range extended between about Pine Creek in the west to the McArthur River in the east, and Melville, Banyan and Bathurst islands. However, its range has contracted, and it has not been seen in the McArthur River since 1913, it has been restricted to the mainland since the 1950s, and is now absent from the north coastal plain east of South Alligator River.
