Distribution by Species: Rarities

Following the example of Theischinger & Hawking 2006 and 2021 (reproduced here with the authors' permission), the map below divides Australia into 16 distinct areas. The table underneath the map lists the 118 species which have only been recorded from a single area.

Each line contains the following pieces of information: the number of the species as per our overall checklist, the area from which the species has been reported (and, in brackets, the total number of species which only occur in the area), the species' common and scientific names, and a Distribution button. Click on the Distribution button to see the species' Australia-wide distribution. Those species of which we have photographs available are listed in dark red; click on their names to see our photographs.

Please note that all of these distribution data, including the dot maps themselves, are copyright-protected. They must not, therefore, be reproduced, republished, redistributed, modified, etc. without the express written permission from the copyright holders. Note also that the acronym DECCW, NSW underneath each dot map stands for the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, New South Wales.
