From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This newly discovered species from New Guinea has been found in two localities in Papua, Indonesia: the base of the Wandamen Peninsula in the Wondowoi Mountains, at 350-850m asl; and the Fakfak Mountains, on the Fakfak Peninsula, at 860m asl. Specimens from Batanta Island might also belong to this species.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives on the floor of tropical forest under leaf-litter, and can tolerate a small amount of logging. It presumably breeds by direct development.


It is common, but not abundant.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The area in which it occurs is scheduled for logging, which might be a threat.

Conservation Actions

Even though it occurs in Wandamen Nature Reserve, this area 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.
