This pie chart shows the relative likelihood of observing particular other species commonly observed near Bischoffena bischoffensis
These species are those which most commonly occur in our observation database near Bischoffena bischoffensis. Observations favor some phyla over others. Typically Bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa, and Arthropods are more common in the field than in our records.
There are now nine sites recorded for this species. There are likely to be very many more (hundreds) but species is cryptic, small, occurs in very variable population densities, lives mainly in fairly remote areas and hence is rarely seen. Extent of occurrence estimated as 5,000 km², but this is likely to be an understimate. It is impossible to estimate area of occupancy with any accuracy because species is of inconsistent population density; it is probably abundant and consistent in some areas but very scattered in others. One record of a single specimen is 60 km away from the other records despite considerable searching in the intervening area. Breaking the species’ range into "reliable" and "unreliable" sections and using estimates of suitable forest cover based with success rates from sampling, a figure of 800 km² can be estimated, but this is an extremely unreliable guesstimate (K. Bonham. pers. comm). There is no information on any range decline.
Rainforest, mixed forest, wet eucalypt forest. Nothing is known of life history parameters (age at maturity, life span (although this is suspected to be short), etc).
