From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from mountains of north-central Papua New Guinea at 1,500-2,500m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

No data are available, but it presumably occurs along small streams in rainforest. If it is similar to other members of the genus, this species lays large eggs in torrential streams and has tadpoles with large suckers. It is not found in degraded habitats.

Population

It is a low-density species.

Population Trend

Stable

Major Threats

None are known.

Conservation Actions

Its distribution, habitat requirements and abundance need to be properly documented. Given declines of torrent-dwelling hylids in Australia, monitoring programmes should be initiated. It is not known from any protected areas.
