Range Description

This species is restricted to the Maokop section of the New Guinea Central Cordillera (Papua Province, Indonesia), where it has been recorded from two localities between the Mount Wilhelmina area in the east and Mount Carstensz in the west. It is possible that it will be recorded from more locations, however, there are likely to be relatively few sites within the high altitude range of this species. It has been recorded from 3,500 to 4,050 m asl (a fossil record was found in a cave at around 2,950 m asl) (Flannery 1995).
