Distribution and habitat
The species is native to monatne forets of the central mountain ranges in West Papua (province), Indonesia and central Papua New Guinea (tparticularly the Ok Tedi River region). It is believed to be possibly nomadic.
The striated lorikeet's habitat is greatly threatened by deforestation to make way for farms and mines (especially copper and gold), and is also believed to be under pressure from recent severe weather events.
