Hatam, Arfak Mountains, Vogelkop, north-west New Guinea.
Status and affinities of populations of this genus in Fakfak Mts (Onin Peninsula) unclear#R#R#R: three sightings in 1981 of birds that looked most similar to M. fumigatus; one seen in 1992 had ventral plumage more like that of present species but facial patch somewhat like that of M. ater (and thus also like that of the then undescribed M. carolae); two seen briefly in 2009 were thought to have facial wattles akin to those reported for 1992; much further research required, and this may have taxonomic implications elsewhere in genus, notably for M. f. kumawa. Monotypic.
