It owes its name with the Guinean ethnicity Telefol which knew the animal well before it is identified by the Australian zoologist Tim Flannery.
He lived in the forests of oaks along the river Nong in the center of the New Guinea New Guinea at an altitude ranging between 1500 and 2000 Mr.
After the dryness and forest fires of 1997, these forests were destroyed and it is thought that the animal thus disappeared.
