From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea, where it has been recorded between 700 and 1,500m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This is a terrestrial inhabitant of rainforest, which breeds by direct development. As its known range is within a pristine area, its adaptability to degraded habitats is unknown.

Population

It is a very uncommon species that is difficult to find.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There are no known threats to this species, and it is at a high enough altitude that logging is unlikely to be a threat.

Conservation Actions

The species' distribution on other islands (if present) and on Bougainville needs to be documented. The species' habitat preferences and population status also need to be assessed. It is not known to occur within any protected area.

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.
