Abstract

Recent captures of Nephrurus milii increase its recorded geographical distribution, suggesting the goldfields population extends further north than has previously been recorded and the Pilbara population is more widespread than has been earlier reported. The relative abundance of this species appears to differ appreciably across its range with the consequence that its presence could easily have gone undetected in the northern midwest and Murchison regions and other sections of the Pilbara due to a lack of adequate survey effort.
