Species  : Xenorhina multisica (Blum & Menzies, 1989)
Synonym  : Xenobatrachus multisica
Family  : Microhylidae
Status   : Paratype
Location  :
  • Munggona, EipomekValley, Irian Jaya, Indonesia (Paratype catalog).
  • This species is known only from Eipomek Valley and the adjacent Famek Valley, and from Okbap, in western New Guinea (Papua, Indonesia), from 1,800-2,080m asl (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).

Field number : PNG MUSEUM 7503
Species  : Xenorhina eiponis Blum & Menzies, 1989
Family  : Microhylidae
Status   : Paratype
Location  :
  • Base Camp at Eipomek Valley, Irian Jaya, Indonesia (Paratype catalog).
  • This species from New Guinea is known only from Eipomek Valley in Papua, Indonesia, at 1,800m asl (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).

It has been found in moss and short grass in secondary vegetation (rural gardens), usually in wetter places, and may also occur in forest (but this has not yet been confirmed). It appears to be terrestrial rather than fossorial (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).
