Range Description

Australia: This species has a wide distribution in inland north-western Australia, across the Northern territory to the Lake Eyre basin, the Darling River drainage system in western New South Wales and into inland and coastal Queensland. Queensland: Cape York, northeast Australia. NSW (Lake Eyre basin, Murray-Darling basin), NT (Lak Eyre basin, N coastal, N Gulf, W plateau), QLD (Lake Eyre basin, Murray-Darling basin, N Gulf, NE coastal), SA (Lake Eyre basin, Murray-Darling basin, W plateau), WA (N coastal, W plateau); known only from limited area, from Fitzroy River, near Derby, across northern Australia to west of Chillagoe, N QLD, and south to Lake Eyre catchment and down the Murray-Darling system to about Nyngan, mid western NSW, east of Great Dividing Range between Townsville and Gladstone, QLD. This taxon appears to be a species-complex and may prove to comprise three undescribed species all found across the northern coastal strip (Davie, 2002). This widespread species is endemic to Australia. The localities cited for this species as Fiji islands (de Man, 1892), New Guinea (Nobili), and Thursday Island (Haswell) are regarded are doubtful.
