Range Description

C. euryotis is endemic to New Caledonia. It is known only from two sites on Ile des Pins (Isle of Pines); at the town of Vao and at a remnant of a closed forest near Waa M Bay (Bauer and Sadlier 1994, Sadlier et al. 2006). The Isle of Pines has an area of 152 km, however, the area of suitable habitat is considerably less (Sadlier et al. 2006). A survey of the islets surrounding the Isle of Pines did not find any individuals (Sadlier et al. 2006). Recorded at elevations up to 200 m asl.

The extent of occurrence is estimated at approximately 150 km and the area of occupancy at <10 km.

[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.]
