This Atlas contains a distribution map for each member of the snake family Elapidae found in Australia. The family contains all the front-fanged, venomous, terrestrial snakes in Australia, representing some 77 species. Several of the world’s deadliest snakes belong to this family, which has representatives in Africa, Asia, India, the Americas and the Pacific Islands. The family reaches its greatest diversity in Australia.
There are almost 17 000 records contained in the Atlas. For the first time, locality data from all the major Australian and overseas institutions housing large collections of elapid snakes have been assembled.
