From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This recently described species is found on the crest of the Wondiwoi Mountains and adjacent eastern slopes (the western slopes have not been surveyed) down to 750m asl at the base of the Wandammen Peninsula, in Papua, Indonesia, and it might occur more widely. Its altitudinal range is 750-900m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species occurs in tropical rainforest with patchy, dense undergrowth. Animals were found perched in bushes and other vegetation between 1 and 3m above the ground. Like other species in the genus, it presumably breeds by direct development, and the eggs are deposited 1.5-2.4m above the ground, and are guarded by the male parent (Günther, 2006).

Population

Specimens of this species are difficult to find, so its population status is not known.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

The threats to this species are not known.

Conservation Actions

It might be present in Wondiwoi Nature Reserve.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little known about its extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, status and ecological requirements.
