This newly described species from Papua, Indonesia, is found at the base of the Wandamen Peninsula in the Wondowoi Mountains, at 580-950m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It has been found only in primary forest, where it lives below leaf-litter on the forest floor, and presumably breeds by direct development.
It is reasonably abundant, but only on the ridge above 800m asl, above the level of Hylophorbus picoides and H. tetraphonus.
The area in which it occurs is scheduled for logging, which might be a threat.
Although it occurs in the Wandamen Peninsula Nature Reserve, this area is not secure from logging.
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, status and ecological requirements.
