From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species occurs on northern and southern Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea, at 700-1,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a scansorial and arboreal species inhabiting rainforest. It has not been found in degraded habitats, perhaps because the habitat within its altitudinal range is still in good condition. It breeds by direct development.


It is a reasonably common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The war in Bougainville has probably minimised potential impacts of logging and mining.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas.
