dc.description.abstractOn 11 August 2000, during the filming of a documentary in Western Province, Papua New Guinea (PNG), the authors flew from Darn Island to the disused airstrip at Weam (141°07'E, 08°37'S), ca. 33 km E of the Indonesian border (Fig. 1). While searching among discarded metal sheeting on the edge of the Weam runway, we found a small Antaresia and two skin sloughs, likely to have come from the same snake, between two upright layers of corrugated sheeting (Fig. 2). The specimen is the first representative of the genus to be found in New Guinea and the first recorded outside Australia.en
