Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to New Caledonia. It is widespread in southern Grande Terre and present on massifs in the north-west as far north as DÃ´me de TiÃ©baghi. It appears to be restricted to ultramafic areas. Recorded up to 1,100 m asl.
The extent of occurrence is estimated at approximately 10,000 kmÂ² and the area of occupancy at 2,000 kmÂ².
[Extent of occurrence was based on a crude measure of overall length times width of the most distant known locations (a rough measure of the line around the points), except for very widespread species where the published areas of the islands were taken. Area of occupancy is a contraction of that rough estimate for extent of occurrence based on where habitat remains.]
