Expected species depth range is from 0 to 9 m.
Taxon Notes:Updated after description. Endemic to eastern Australia; known from southern Queensland (as far north as Agnes Water), New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Hybrid individuals involving this species with P. olorum occur in very south-west Victoria, south-east South Australia and north-west Tasmania. Shallow-water estuarine, found in estuaries of rivers, streams and mangroves, at depths of 0–3 m. Typically much more coastal in distribution than the frequently inland P. olorum (likely in part relating to the topography of higher gradient streams along the Great Dividing Range habitat of south-eastern Australia, compared to the lower relief in south-western Australia) (Larson & Hammer, 2021).
