Range Description

This species is known from apparently separate subpopulations on the island of New Guinea (Indonesia and Papua New Guinea). The western subpopulation recorded from around Lake Habemma and the slopes of Mount Wilhelmina in Papua Province, Indonesia, and the eastern subpopulation on the Star Mountains (Lake Louise area) and Victor Emmanual Range, Papua New Guinea. It is possible (perhaps even probable) that the species occurs along the intervening mountain ranges. It has been recorded between 2,800 and 3,600 m asl.

There is an undescribed murid from the Star Mountains (Telefomin) which has been confused with this species, but this is a different species.
