Conservation ActionsThere are no direct conservation measures in place for this species. There is a need to conserve suitable areas of forest on Dalupiri Island, and to undertake additional research into the distribution (especially for the islands of Calayan and Camiguin Norte), ecological requirements, and threats to this little-known species.
Location InformationThis Philippines endemic species is known from a 1990 survey on Dalupiri Island, in the Babuyan Island Group, Cagayan Province (Ota and Ross 1994). Recent specimens may have been collected from Calayan and Camiguin Norte Islands, although this needs confirmation (R. Brown pers. comm. 2007). The known range is 52km2, though if confirmed, the additional records would expand the range to perhaps 300 km².
