Range Description

Bavayia pulchella is endemic to New Caledonia. It has been recorded from only a small area of the main dividing range to the east of Bourail, Grande Terre. It is known from two localities about 6 km apart that may be part of one population, and are between 500-600 m above sea level (Bauer et al. 1998). These sites are right on the provincial boundary.

The extent of occurrence is estimated at approximately 12 km and the area of occupancy at 2 km.

[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.]
