From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from the Manus and Rambutyo in the Admiralty Islands, Papua New Guinea. It is a lowland species, being found below 100m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species inhabits streams in tropical rainforest. It is a species that breeds by direct development and lays its eggs on the ground. It has also been found in suburban areas, rural gardens, and other degraded habitats, but lives at higher densities in mature forest.

Population

It was recorded as recently as 2002, and is relatively common.

Population Trend

Stable

Major Threats

Although somewhat adaptable, logging could have a major impact on this species (about 30% of islands are subject to serious logging pressure). It is consumed locally for food.

Conservation Actions

The impacts of logging need to be assessed, and the species' distribution among the islands of the Admiralty Archipelago needs to be determined. It is not known from any protected areas.
