This species is known only from the vicinity of the type locality, Guadalcanal Island, in the Solomon Islands.
Habitat and Ecology
This species presumably inhabits montane tropical rainforest, and presumably breeds by direct development, laying its eggs on the ground.
It has not been recorded again since it was discovered in 1968, but there have been no recent surveys of the area.
There are no known threats to this species. The civil war in Guadalcanal has probably reduced the threat from extractive industries.
The extent of occurrence, habitat requirements and population status for this species need to be documented. It is not known from any protected areas.
