From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species occurs on Buka and Bougainville Islands, Papua New Guinea, up to 500m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits the floor of tropical rainforest, and also degraded habitats, such as rural gardens, forest regrowth, and plantations. It is a species that breeds by direct development and lays its eggs on the ground.

Population

It is a reasonably common species.

Population Trend

stable

Major Threats

The war in Bougainville has probably minimised impacts of logging, but it is doubtful that this species would be adversely affected by logging.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
