From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the lowlands of the Lorentz River region of southern Papua, Indonesia. It presumably occurs more widely in the rainforests of this region but this is not a well-studied area.

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information available regarding the breeding habits of this rainforest species.


This species has not been collected since it was first described, so its population status is unknown; however there have been no surveys of the type locality since then.

Population Trend


Major Threats

It is presumably not facing any particular threats, but is in fact secure due to the extensive areas of natural habitat that survive, but new data are required before a reasonable assessment can be made of the threats to it.

Conservation Actions

Its current known range is wholly within Lorentz National Park, which is also a World Heritage Area.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
