Range Description

This species is known from two widely separated localities in Papua New Guinea: the Schrader Mountains, and the southern flanks of the Star Mountains near the Papuan (Indonesia) border. It is known from altitudes between 1,600 and 2,200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is found on vegetation along torrential mountain streams, in which it presumably breeds, in rainforest.

Population

This species is not always collected when visiting the same location suggesting that it is either a rare species, or one that is hard to find.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

It is not known what the general threats are to this species, but localized threats might be an issue.

Conservation Actions

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