Q: Byblis: range and conservation status

A: Byblis gigantea and Byblis lamellata are found only in the Perth region of Western Australia. As they are species with restricted ranges, they are at somewhat elevated conservation risk to to habitat destruction from urban sprawl.

Byblis liniflora occurs in a large area of northern Australia, and also southern New Guinea. The rest of the species in the genus live in a swath of land in northwestern Western Australia, from west of Broome, through the Darwin area, east towards Weipa.
