Range Description

This species is endemic to Mindanao in the Philippines, where until very recently it was documented from only two or three localities but is now known from as many as seven, as follows: Mt Hilong-hilong at Siwod; Mt Pasian, Bislig; Mt Puting Bato, Davao del Norte; Mt Kitanglad at Malaybalay, at Mt Kaatoan, at Mt Nangkabulos, and at Kinubalan, with unspecified sublocalities; Mt Piapayungan at Siwagat; Mt Apo; Mt Parker, T'boli; Mt Three Kings; Mt Busa on the south slope at Binati. It is described as moderately common but very local, although is probably present on every mountain in central Mindanao. It is very unobtrusive and secretive, and its high-pitched call (typical of the genus) is easily overlooked. On voice, however, it appears to be not uncommon at Kitanglad.
