Range Description

Paradigalla carunculata is endemic to the Arfak Mountains in the Vogelkop peninsula of Papua (formerly Irian Jaya), Indonesia, where there are few records but it is probably not uncommon (Gibbs 1993, Poulsen and Frolander 1994, Frith and Beehler 1998). An undescribed Paradigalla taxon discovered in the nearby Fakfak Mountains, and possibly occurring on other mountain ranges in the Vogelkop, may be this species, although it shows some features of Short-tailed Paradigalla P. brevicauda (Gibbs 1994, Frith and Beehler 1998).
