From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the vicinity of the type locality, Guadalcanal Island, in the Solomon Islands.

Habitat and Ecology

This species presumably inhabits montane tropical rainforest, and presumably breeds by direct development, laying its eggs on the ground.


It has not been recorded again since it was discovered in 1968, but there have been no recent surveys of the area.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There are no known threats to this species. The civil war in Guadalcanal has probably reduced the threat from extractive industries.

Conservation Actions

The extent of occurrence, habitat requirements and population status for this species need to be documented. It is not known from any protected areas.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
