|Scientific Name:||Papurana kreffti (Boulenger, 1882)|
Hylarana kreffti (Boulenger, 1882)
Rana kreffti Boulenger, 1882
|Taxonomic Notes:||The taxonomy of the Solomon Islands Hylarana species requires further study to determine the number of taxa involved.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Stephen Richards, Fred Parker|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)|
Listed as Least Concern since, although its currently known Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species is widespread in the Solomon Islands, and also occurs on New Ireland and Buka Island, Papua New Guinea. It has been recorded up to 300m asl.|
Native:Papua New Guinea; Solomon Islands

|Population:||It has been observed as common, and also not so common in some areas.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species inhabits small, slow streams in lowland rainforest. It has also been recorded from wet grassy areas in disturbed habitats.|
|Major Threat(s):||Threats to this species are unknown.|
|Conservation Actions:||The distribution of this species needs to be documented, and the taxonomy of different populations needs to be assessed. It is within the Makira Integrated Conservation and Development Project Area.|
|Errata reason:||This species has been moved to the genus Papurana (previously Hylarana).|
