DistributionRead full entry
Queensland tube-nosed fruit bats (Nyctimene robinsoni) are found along the east coast of Queensland, Australia ranging from northern New South Wales to the Cape York Peninsula. Few observations have been made on the occurrence of Queensland tube-nosed fruit bats south of the Queensland border but they are believed to have a more scattered distribution at the southern end of their range. Recordings of the southern range of Queensland tube-nosed fruit bats were taken south of Nightcap National Park at Snows Creek (a tributary of Coopers Creek found 26 km north north east of Lismore, New South Wales) and around the forest canopy at Boomerang Falls Flora Reserve (about 5 km south south west of Snows Creek). Queensland tube-nosed fruit bats are generally dispersed along the coast throughout their range; the farthest inland recording is also the most southerly recording and comes from the Culmaran Creek valley in Richmond Range State Forest approximately 84 km east of the coast. A specimen housed by the Australian Museum is reported to come from as far south as Wee Jasper, New South Wales, however this is believed to be attributed to a labeling error and this specimen has been determined to be island tube-nosed fruit bat.
