Type Locality

Victoria, Chandlers Ck, near junction with Cann R., 27 km north of Cann River.


The species has been collected at elevations between 150 m and 400 m above sea level from the easterly and southerly flowing streams from near Mt. Imlay south of Eden (New South Wales) to Lind National Park, 20 km west of Cann River (Victoria), a distance of about 90 km.


Dry sclerophyll forest and heath vegetated ridges above streams with tree ferns and vines frequently along valleys. Euastacus bidawalus is present in cleared areas if a border of vegetation persists along creeks.

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
