Overview

Distribution

Range Description

This species is known from the holotype, collected on the Vogelkop Peninsula of Papua Province, Indonesia at 2,000 m asl, and some additional specimens in the Australian Museum in Sydney (Helgen 2007). The area has not been well collected, so it could well be more widely distributed in the Arfak Mountains.

Justification
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing doubts as to its taxonomic validity as well as absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status, and ecological requirements. The taxonomy of this species needs to be clarified; it is provisionally recognized as a species, however, its taxonomic status needs to be reassessed in the context of a systematic revision of the R. niobe complex.
