Range Description

The type locality of this species is in northern Papua New Guinea, but the exact location is not known. Otherwise the species is known with certainty only from Ivimka Camp, at 100m asl in the Lakekamu Basin, Gulf Province, Papua New Guinea (Richards and Oliver, 2006). Records from Darai Plateau, Southern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea, and from Dark End Lumber, Gulf Province, Papua New Guinea refer to Litoria sauroni, whereas those from Huon Peninsula, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea refer to L. dux, and those from the northwestern coastal mountains of Papua New Guinea refer to L. huntorum. Records from the Vogelkop Peninsula in Papua, Indonesia, could refer to one of these species, but most likely represent an undescribed species (S. Richards, pers. comm.). However, Litoria graminea almost certainly occurs more widely in eastern Papua New Guinea than is currently known.
