Range Description

Collocalia papuensis is known from a handful of specimens from New Guinea (Papua, formerly Irian Jaya, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea). Specimens are known from the Idenburg River (where flocks of up to 30 birds were recorded), northern Snow Mountains, around Jayapura and one taken in 1993 from a cave in the Hindenburg Range. There are unconfirmed sight records across northern Papua New Guinea to the Huon Peninsula but this species may be unidentifiable in the field (Coates 1985, Beehler et al. 1986, Rowland 1994).
