Distribution by Species

Following the example of Theischinger & Hawking 2006 (reproduced here with the authors' permission), the map below divides Australia into 16 distinct areas. The table underneath the map lists the area(s) in which the various species have been recorded.

Each line contains the following pieces of information: the number of the species as per our overall checklist, its common and scientific names, the number of areas from which the species has been reported, a list of the relevant areas, 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.

Note: if you would prefer to see the distributions by area (rather than by species), please click here.

And finally, if you would like to see an overview of the country's rare (or at least, highly localised) species which only occur in a single area, please click here.
