This species is known only from two sites 1km apart on Mount Menawa, in the Bewani Mountains, West Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, where it has been collected from 950-1,200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species inhabits the interior and edges of closed-canopy rainforest, and breeds by direct development.
When collected, it was recorded as common, but difficult to find.
There are no known threats to it.
The extent of its distribution needs to be documented, and a search for additional populations needs to be undertaken. Its range does not overlap with any protected areas.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its Extent of Occurrence, population status and ecological requirements.
