|Scientific Name:||Dendrolagus dorianus|
|Species Authority:||Ramsay, 1883|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Vulnerable A3cd ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Leary, T., Seri, L., Flannery, T., Wright, D., Hamilton, S., Helgen, K., Singadan, R., Menzies, J., Allison, A. & James, R.|
|Reviewer(s):||Lamoreux, J. & Hilton-Taylor, C. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)|
Listed as Vulnerable based on a projected population decline of more than 30% within the next three generations (i.e., 30 years), due to declines in habitat, and unsustainable levels of exploitation.
|Previously published Red List assessments:||
|Range Description:||This species is endemic to New Guinea, where it is found in the high elevations of the central mountains of southeastern Papua New Guinea. It ranges between 600 and 3,650 m asl.|
Native:Papua New Guinea
|Lower elevation limit (metres):||600|
|Upper elevation limit (metres):||3650|

|Population:||It is generally rare and occurs at low densities. The productivity of its preferred habitat is low, resulting in a natural low population density.|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is restricted to mossy mid- to upper primary montane tropical forest.|
|Major Threat(s):||This species is threatened by heavy hunting for food with dogs by local people. Future threats include habitat loss and degradation.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species occurs in several protected areas. Further studies are needed into the taxonomy distribution, abundance, natural history, and threats to it.|
