Range Description

Accipiter luteoschistaceus is endemic to New Britain and Umboi with unconfirmed records from New Ireland (probably referring to New Britain Sparrowhawk A. brachyurus [Dutson 2011]) in Papua New Guinea (Finch and McKean 1987, Debus 1992, Hornbuckle 1999a, T. Palliser in litt. 1999). It is only known from c.11 specimens and a handful of recent records, but it is likely to have been overlooked as it appears to be unobtrusive and can be difficult to identify due to confusion with A. hiogaster (Diamond 1976, Coates 1985, K. D. Bishop in litt. 1994, Clay 1994, J. Pilgrim in litt. 1999, Dutson 2011).
