This species is known from Buka and Bougainville Islands in Papua New Guinea, and Choiseul and Isabel Islands in the Solomon Islands. It has been recorded up to 700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is a scansorial species in lowland and hill rainforest. They have also been found on the forest edge, and in native bananas (not in plantations), but it prefers primary forest. It is a species that breeds by direct development and lays its eggs in leaves in trees about 2m above the ground.
This species appears to be abundant (S. Richards pers. obs.).
Logging is a threat to this species, particularly in the political Solomon Islands portion of the range.
The impacts of logging on this species need to be determined, and the range in the Solomons Archipelago needs to be further documented. There are no protected areas within the range of this species.
