Range Description

Endemic to Seychelles, this species occurs on the six islands: Mah, Silhouette, Praslin, La Digue, Curieuse and Flicit (Hill 2002, Matatiken and Dogley 2006). The total area of these islands is of 232 km (National Statistics Bureau 2005). The extent of occurrence (EOO) is therefore less than 5,000 km and the area of occupancy (AOO) is less than 500 km.

In a survey from 1994 it was found in 37 out of 73 areas of special conservation value (Carlstrm 1996). This indicates its rather wide (intra island) distribution.
