Brachydiplax denticauda is a species of dragonfly that can be found in a range that includes north and northeastern areas of Australia, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. It can be found near slow moving freshwater sources. The species is small, so it can be hard to see, but as is typical to its genus, males hold bright colors such as powder blue with a cream color on the mouth. This trait has given it the common name of palemouth. It is thought to have a stable population...
Astrocoeniidae is a family of stony corals endemic to the waters around Papua New Guinea and northern Australia. Their habitats are steep slopes where strong currents rise from below, in crevices and below overhangs. These are reef-building colonial corals containing an algae known as zooxanthallae.

A very few specimens have also been collected at altitude in Irian Jaya, however these specimens were reared from immature stages and emerged crippled, suggesting that high altitude forests are not favoured habitats. Males...
The Black Tree Monitor, Varanus beccari, is a relatively small member of the Varanidae family. It is native to the forest of the Aru Islands of Papua New Guinea. It is well adapted to living in trees. This species has a particularly long tail, sometimes two-thirds of the overall length of the body. It is used to stabilize the animal when on tree branches. In fact the tail is used for this purpose solely. It does not use its tail for lashing in a defensive manner as seen in other monitor...
