From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the vicinity of the Wondiwoi Mountains, west of the coastal village of Yretuar, at the base of the Wandammen Peninsula, and from 54km along the Nabrie-Mapia road, in Papua, Indonesia, at 350-750m asl. It almost certainly ranges more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives on low vegetation in tropical rainforest up to 2m above the ground. It occurs in dense and open forests, but not in secondary habitats, and presumably breeds by direct development.


This species is abundant at its type locality.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Some selective logging is taking place within its range, but this is probably not a serious threat.

Conservation Actions

This species occurs in Wandamen Nature Reserve, though this is not secure from logging.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
