From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two localities in the headwaters of the Wapoga River in north-western Papua, Indonesia. It is probably more widespread in suitable habitat, but its distribution and population status require further documentation. It is known to occur at 550-1,200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in and around torrential streams, in which it presumably breeds, in closed-canopy rainforest.


It is an abundant species where found.

Population Trend


Major Threats

No threats are known to this species, which occurs in a very remote area, with no people living in the vicinity of the type locality.

Conservation Actions

Given the declines of torrent-dwelling hylids in Australia, the population status of this species requires close monitoring.

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.
