Range Description

This species is endemic to northern Australia, where it has a very limited distribution. It is known to occur on the Tiwi Islands (Bathurst and Melville Islands), Northern Territory within 20 km of the coast (Woolley 2008). It was described from just a few specimens collected in 1965-1966 from Kalumburu in the Kimberley, Western Australia. Subsequent survey work has failed to locate the species in the Kimberley and its continued presence here is uncertain.
