Location InformationThis species was originally described from the Ayamaru Lakes in the middle of the Birds Head Peninsula of West Papua Province, Indonesia. It has not been seen there since the first specimens were captured in 1955, but it is unclear if specimens were collected from the lake itself or streams in the vicinity. It possibly now survives only in the nearby Kaliwensi River (Kadarusman et al. 2010).
