Freshwater threatened species distribution maps

The indicative (or known and expected) distributions for a number of NSW freshwater threatened species has been modelled and maps can be downloaded from the below table.

The indicative distribution means there is a high probability that the species will occur in a stream segment, given the species has been recorded there or the environmental conditions are the same as a stream segment where the species is already known to occur.

Modelled indicative distribution maps are currently not available for the other NSW freshwater threatened species that are not listed in the below table, due to the limited number of records, or the limited number of correlated environmental attributes and/or limitations of the modelling to produce accurate and reliable mapping.

Distribution maps for those freshwater species not listed in the below table are provided in the Primefacts for individual threatened species.

Please note: These maps do not indicate entire species distributions, and there may be errors or omissions as described in the limitations section below.

To help us improve the accuracy of the species distribution maps, please report any sightings of these species in NSW with photos to confirm their identification, using the online reporting form

Limitations

Please note the following limitations related to the data, methods and techniques used to produce the above indicative distribution maps.

  1. The data and records are not comprehensive. The information contained in the maps is based on the best available knowledge and understanding at the time of production. However, because of advances in knowledge, users are reminded of the need to ensure that information upon which they rely is up to date and to check currency of the information.
  2. Recognising that some of the information in the maps are provided by third parties, the State of New South Wales the author and the publisher take no responsibility for the accuracy, currency, reliability and correctness of any information included in the document provided by thirds parties.
  3. The indicative distribution maps are only available for the above listed freshwater threatened species and populations in NSW. Modelled indicative distribution maps are not currently available for the other listed freshwater threatened species in NSW due to the limited number of records, or the limited number of correlated environmental attributes and/or limitations of the modelling to produce accurate and reliable mapping.
  4. The maps do not indicate entire species distributions, and there may be errors or omissions. The maps are limited to NSW; however species may have distributions that extend beyond State borders.
