From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species has been recorded from four localities in southern Papua (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea. All localities are near sea level, and it is unlikely to occur above 500m asl. The mapped distribution presumes its occurrence between known locations.

Habitat and Ecology

It presumably inhabits the forest floor in lowland rainforest, but there are no ecological data. It presumably breeds by direct development.


Only four specimens are known.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

The distribution needs to be documented, particularly in areas between currently known localities. It is likely to occur in some protected areas, but this has not yet been proven.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its probable wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
