From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from Wendessi (at 2,400m asl) and from the Arfak Mountains (also at 2,400m asl), Papua, Indonesia. A recent specimen from Yapen Island might be this species, but this has not yet been confirmed (Gunther pers. comm.).

Habitat and Ecology

It presumably occurs in torrential streams in tropical rainforest.

Population

There are no confirmed records of this species since it was first described, so its population status is unknown.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It might occur in Arfak Mountains National Park. If it is a torrent-dwelling species, its population will require close monitoring, given the declines of torrent-dwelling hylids in Australia.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

Populations have been referred to this name from various parts of New Guinea, but only the true Litoria pratti is covered in this account (Richards pers. comm.).
