Sloane’s Froglet, Crinia sloanei, is a small frog with an historical distribution in north central Victoria and central western NSW from the Victorian to the Queensland border. It has been sparsely and infrequently recorded across its range, especially in the last 10 years. It is listed as Vulnerable (Hughes, 2008) under the NSW Threatened Species Act and as data deficient by the IUCN (IUCN, 2013).Very little is known about the species. It was necessary to develop an understanding of the current distribution in order to gain an insight into the species and underpin the design of future research.This report has two aims. Firstly, it examines the distribution of Sloane’s Froglet from its time of discovery in 1957 (Littlejohn 1958) to the present time as made available in wildlife databases and in other records provided by herpetologists. Secondly, it presents the recent distribution information developed from surveys undertaken in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 by the author as part of her PhD research programme.
