Range Description

Bavayia sauvagii is endemic to New Caledonia. It is present throughout Grande Terre, except the far north (northernmost localities are Mt Kaala in the west and Mt Ignambi in the east); Ile des Pins and its satellite islands; and Iles Loyaut (only Mar) (Bavayia sauvagii s.s. occurs only in the southwest of Grande Terre between Mt Do and Mt Koghis/Yahou Valley). An equal diversity of cryptic taxa is in Province Nord and Province Sud. It occurs at elevations of up to 900 m. The extent of occurrence of Bavayia sauvagii s.l. is approximately 15,500 km, whereas for Bavayia sauvagii s.s. is approximately 1,500 km. The area of occupancy is estimated at < 10,000 km for Bavayia sauvagii s.l. and < 800 km for Bavayia sauvagii s.s.

[Extent of occurrence was based on a crude measure of overall length times width of the most distant known locations (a rough measure of the line around the points), except for very widespread species where the published areas of the islands were taken. Area of occupancy is a contraction of that rough estimate for extent of occurrence based on where habitat remains.]
