From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This recently described species is known from the slopes and valleys east of the main ridge of the Wondiwoi Mountains at the base of the Wandammen Peninsula, Papua, Indonesia, from 500-900m asl. It is possible that it is also present in the Fakfak Mountains, although further studies are needed to confirm the identity of animals from this area.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in tropical rainforest, where specimens were found perched in trees between 3 and 6m above the ground. Like other species in the genus, it is presumably a species that breeds by direct development.


Specimens of this frog are difficult to find.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The threats to this species are not known.

Conservation Actions

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
