From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

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.

Population

It is an abundant species where found.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

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.

Conservation Actions

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