This species is known only from two localities in the headwaters of the Wapoga River in north-western Papua, Indonesia. It is probably more widespread in suitable habitat, but its distribution and population status require further documentation. It is known to occur at 550-1,200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in and around torrential streams, in which it presumably breeds, in closed-canopy rainforest.
It is an abundant species where found.
No threats are known to this species, which occurs in a very remote area, with no people living in the vicinity of the type locality.
Given the declines of torrent-dwelling hylids in Australia, the population status of this species requires close monitoring.
