From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from two widely separated areas of mainland New Guinea: Onin Peninsula, Papua, Indonesia; and the southern slopes of the Star Mountains, Western Province, Papua New Guinea. Its distribution might prove to be continuous, but new data are urgently required to assess this possibility. The type locality in Papua is at 70m asl, and in the Star Mountains it has been recorded from 1,460-1,600m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in tropical rainforest, where the type specimen was found in a limestone cave. Specimens observed by Richards (pers. comm.) were in hill and montane rainforest. Like other species in the genus, this species presumably breeds by direct development.

Population

This is not thought to be a common species.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There are no known major threats to it.

Conservation Actions

Its distribution, habitat requirements and abundance need to be properly documented; in particular with a view to determining whether or not the two known populations are contiguous. It is not known from any protected areas.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its Extent of Occurrence, population status and ecological requirements.
