Range Description

This poorly-known species has been recorded from Flores and possibly the Sumbawa islands in the Lesser Sunda Islands, from south-eastern Sulawesi and on the Peleng Islands, and on the Moluccan Islands of Batjan, Buru, Ambon, Ceram, and Gorong (all Indonesia). It has been recorded from scattered localities on the island of New Guinea (Indonesia and Papua New Guinea), and has been recorded from the islands of Umboi and New Britain (both Papua New Guinea). In Australia, it is known from a number of localities in northern Queensland up to the Iron Range area and then south between the Shiptons Flat-Cedar Bay area and Mount Zero near Paluma (Corbet and Hill 1992; Flannery 1995a,b; Bonaccorso 1998; Duncan et al. 1999; Schulz et al. 2008). It was thought previously to have an altitudinal range of between 400 and 2,800 m asl., but it has recently been found at sea level in West New Britain (S. Hamilton pers. comm.).
