Range Description

This recently described species is known from two populations, one that ranges from 250-700m asl on the eastern slope of the Wondiwoi Mountains at the base of the Wandamen Peninsula, and a second population from the northern and southern slopes of the Fakfak Mountains, north of Fakfak town, at around 250-900m asl, in Papua, Indonesia. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest.

Habitat and Ecology

This species is associated with slow-flowing streams in closed-canopy primary rainforest. Adults are often found perched on the leaves of low vegetation 0.5-2m above the ground, and larvae have been collected in streams and from a roadside ditch.
