Range Description

Aegotheles wallacii is known only from New Guinea (Papua, formerly Irian Jaya, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea). It has been recorded from the Aru islands and Vogelkop in the far west across to Karimui in central Papua New Guinea. It is known from few specimens and very few recent observations; the paucity of records largely results from the extremely unobtrusive nature of the genus, and its call is poorly known (Coates 1985, Beehler et al. 1986, Cleere and Nurney 1998). As a result its status cannot be assessed from the current data.
