Listed as Critically Endangered (Possibly Extinct) because if the species still exists the population must be very small (less than 50 mature individuals) and likely in decline due to hunting pressures. Although the area has not been well-sampled, there have been a few visits to the area with no reports of this species.
|Range Description:||Known only from a single specimen (an adult male) collected in 1928 by Ernst Mayr in the Wondiwoi Peninsula of Papua (Indonesia). Elevation of specimen: 1,600 m asl.|
