From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from a few specimens from three small islands off the Papuan coast in Indonesia: Ambon and Seram Islands in the Maluku Islands, and Batanta Island. It is a lowland species, and was found below 50m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in seasonally flooded lowland forest, where it is terrestrial, and presumably breeds by direct development.


When it was last found (in 1987, on Seram), it was variously reported as being very rare and common.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There are no specific data on threats to this species, but there is evidence of increasing disturbance of the forest on Seram, and the habitats on Ambon are very heavily disturbed.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in Manusela National Park on Seram.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
