Range Description

Podoces biddulphi is known from Xinjiang, western China, where it occurs in the Taklimakan Desert (and there is a recent sight record well to the east of this area, near Golmud in Qinghai) (BirdLife International 2001). It was described as being common in 1929-1930, but it was scarce and difficult to locate in the same areas in 1988. However, it has recently been found to be widespread and locally common in the interior of the Taklimakan Desert.
