This species occurs along the east coast of Australia, from the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system of the State of New South Wales to the headwaters of the Mitchell River, western tributaries of the Barron River drainage, and east-flowing streams of the Paluma Range in the State of Queensland.
Habitat and Ecology
This species is found in a wide range of habitats, usually along rocky streams, including pastoral lands. Males are often found some distance from water. Eggs are laid in streams at the edge of areas of slow water or partly under small rocks on the bottom of the stream. Egg masses adhere to rocks, sedges, or bottom sediment.
This species is locally abundant. However, declines have been noted in some areas, including in high-altitude forests of northeastern New South Wales.
This species is fairly resilient to habitat alteration.
The range of the species includes several protected areas.
This species was revalidated by Donnellan and Mahony (2004).
