Range Description

Megalurulus llaneae is endemic to Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. The only definite records are from c.1,500 m in the Crown Prince Range in the south of the island (Diamond 1975, Hadden 1983). However, a song, possibly of this species, has been heard more widely, including on Mt Balbi in the north and down to 900 m (Hadden 1981, 1983). Although it has a small range and presumably a small population, this species is not threatened by habitat change but may be at risk from introduced predatory mammals.
