From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from several lakes in the Enarotali area of Papua, Indonesia, at about 1,700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives on the rocky shorelines of the lakes.


It has been found to be very common within a small area, and is very well represented in museum collections.

Population Trend


Major Threats

No threats are known at present. However, since it occurs in an area subject to heavy tourist activity, it might be susceptible to disturbance and degradation of its habitat.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas. The species requires close population monitoring given that it is known only from around the Enarotali area. Further survey work is necessary to establish whether or not the species occurs in habitats away from the lake shores.

Red List Status

Vulnerable (VU)


Listed as Vulnerable because it is known from fewer than five locations.
