DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species appears to be restricted to Mts. Albert Edward and Giluwe (not collected from the latter since the 1960s). It seems likely to have become extinct on Mount Wilhelm in living memory (Flannery 1995), and although this population is mapped it is not considered extant for the purposes of the assessment. The two remaining subpopulations are suspected to be relicts of what was once a much more widely distributed species (Flannery 1995). It has been recorded at around 2,800 m asl.
