Approximate distribution of the Eastern spiny-tailed Gecko Strophurus williamsi

I have found Eastern spiny-tailed Geckos Strophurus williamsi as far South as Mannum in South Australia in an area of sand dunes under rocks and I have also found one on a branch a few feet off the ground in SA near the SA/NSW border on the road to Broken Hill, as well as crossing the road at night in Qld.

This species is sometimes confused with the Southern Spiny-tailed Gecko Strophurus intermedius but has more distinct spines on its back and tail
