Range Description

This species is endemic to South Australia and Western Australia, Australia. The nominate subspecies is widespread through the arid and semi-arid regions of both states. Although there has been a recent contraction in the east of its range, its extensive range outside the agricultural zone appears to be unaffected. Subspecies rosinae has a very restricted distribution, with three principle populations along the northern shore of the Gulf of St Vincent, from St Kilda to Ardrossan. Subspecies hedleyi has a fragmented distribution, primarily across Big and Little Deserts, Victoria, and Ninety Mile Plain, South Australia.
