Range Description

Pitohui incertus is known from two tiny areas of New Guinea: about 90 km up the Noord River in Papua, formerly Irian Jaya (Indonesia) and 320 km to the east, between Kiunga and the Palmer Junction on the Fly River (Papua New Guinea) (Diamond and Raga 1978, Beehler et al. 1986, Coates 1990). It may prove to be widespread across the northern Trans-Fly region since studies in its habitat have been restricted to these two locations (Diamond and Raga 1978). It appears to be common in the two known localities (P. Gregory in litt. 1994, K. D. Bishop in litt. 1996, Eastwood 1998, B. Whitney in litt. 2000).
