Abstract The extant distribution of Dasyatls tluviorum Ogilby. 1908 is confined to rivers. estuaries and near-shore marine waters along approximately 1700 km of the eastern Australian coastline from central New South Wales (340 4 -S) northwards to central Queensland (200 37 -S). Records of D. tluviorum from northern Australia, Papua New Guinea and eastern Indonesia appear to be misidentifications of Dasyatis sp. 1 (as described by White et at 2006). An analysis of historical records shows no evidence of a contraction in distribution in south-eastern Australia as had previously been reported. However. the preferred habitats of D. fluviorum are heavily impacted by human activities throughout much of its range. 0 Biogeography, Chondrichthyes, Myliobatiformes, elasmobranch, distribution, conservation.
