From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from Eipomek Valley and the adjacent Famek Valley, and from Okbap, in western New Guinea (Papua, Indonesia), from 1,800-2,080m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is found in tropical rainforest under moss, and also between 20 and 30cm deep in the ground in grasslands and gardens, so it can clearly persist in severely modified habitats. It breeds by direct development.


It is not a common species, and occurs at low densities.

Population Trend


Major Threats

This species is probably not facing any major threats, as a result of its adaptability.

Conservation Actions

The distribution and population status needs to be documented, including populations in forest habitats. It is not known from any protected areas.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
