Endemism is relatively low except for avifauna, which includes the species buffy hummingbird (Leucippus fallax) and chesnut piculet (Picumnus cinnamomeus).
All Antillean amphibians (Table 1.2) are frogs, and two Lesser Antillean endemics, a small tree frog, Eleutherodactylus martinicensis, and the large "mountain chicken" Leptodactylus fallax, occur principally on Dominica.
Eucalypt woodlands occur on the plains in the east of the region between the Gulf and Einasleigh Uplands, and Melaleuca spp. form extensive low woodlands with a mixed grass component dominated by Aristida spp. and Chrysopogon fallax.
The fifth strict endemic is the northern Luzon shrew-mouse (Crunomys fallax), known from a single specimen collected at about 300 m in the northern Sierra Madres.
The principal fish dependent on this teeming life are eel Anguilla anguilla, mullets Mugil cephalus and M. ramada, sole Solea solea, sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax, barbel Barbus barbus, shad Alosa fallax and anchovy Engraulis encrasicholus.
West of the grassland plains a narrow band of eucalypt and Melaleuca woodlands with a Chrysopogon fallax-dominated understory skirts the north of the Mount Isa Inlier.
Among the most interesting amphibians found in this hotspot is the "mountain chicken" (Leptodactylus fallax, CR), the second largest frog in the Western hemisphere.
 Este procul nymphae, fallax genus este puellae,
Pendet fallax et blanda circa oscula mariti, quem in cruce, si fieri posset, deosculari velit: illius vitam chariorem esse sua jurejurando affirmat: quem certe non redimeret anima catelli si posset.
Though we seem many times to be angry,  and blush at our own praises, yet our souls inwardly rejoice, it puffs us up; 'tis fallax suavitas, blandus daemon, makes us swell beyond our bounds, and forget ourselves.
