Location: Papua New Guinea
The Eastern Long-beaked Echidna have a large altitudinal range and correspondingly broad ecological scope. Across their entire range they have been recorded from near sea level to 4150 metres a.s.l., although regionally their altitudinal range may be more restricted. This echnidna species lives in lowland hill forest, lower and upper montane forests, and sub-alpine forests, grasslands and scrub. They have been recorded in secondary habitats. They are probably absent from any habitat subject to seasonal inundation or waterlogging, including the extensive alluvial forests of the Gulf of Papua.
