STATUS: This species has its main distribution, with at least two recognized subspecies, in Papua with subspecies microleuca also distributed in Papua New Guinea. The status of the populations of ssp. campbelli found in the Foja Mountains must be confirmed. The wide gap between the populations of the Kobowre Mountains and those of the Cyclops Mountains could indicate that it is continued in the Foja Mountains.
PAPUA LOCALITIES: ssp. campbelli: Mt. Cyclops, Homeyo, Modio, Sentani, Timeepa; ssp. microleuca: Borme, Kobakma, Korupun, Lower Mist Camp, Pass Valley, Sumbole; ssp. ?: Foja Mts. Details in gazetteer.
