Range Description

This species is endemic to the Wet Tropics Bioregion (Williams and Hero 1998, 2001) and occurs from Broadwater Creek National Park to Amos Bay, north Queensland, at altitudes between sea level and 1,180m asl (McDonald 1992). Three genetic lineages of Litoria rheocola have been identified, based on mitochondrial DNA, distributed from Kirrama Range to Palmerston National Park; Bartle Frere to Harris Peak; and from Mt Lewis to Big Tableland (Schneider, Cunningham and Moritz 1998). Each of these lineages carries substantial genetic variability (Schneider, Cunningham and Moritz 1998).
