From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from two localities in West Papua, New Guinea, Indonesia, about 100km apart: the Panara Valley near Doorman Top; and the Wapoga River headwaters (Richards et al. 2000), where it was recently discovered. It probably occurs in intervening areas where there is extensive suitable habitat, and its distribution is probably substantially broader than is currently recognized. It occurs over 1,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs on low vegetation along torrential mountain streams in submontane rainforest, where it is most often seen at night. It has only been found so far in closed forest, and it is presumed to breed in streams.

Population

It was found to be common in its recently discovered site.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

No threats are known, and it probably has a relatively wide distribution.

Conservation Actions

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