Range Description

This species is now endemic to the islands of Tasmania and Bruny (Australia) (Driessen 2008). It was previously known from the east coast of mainland Australia. It was thought to have declined on the mainland in the Pleistocene, but recent research has shown that it was present here until about 200 years ago. It occurs across all elevations in Tasmania, from sea level to around 1,600 m asl.
