Range Description

This species is endemic to Madagascar, where it is known from scattered mid-elevations localities throughout the island's southeast, including Nahampoana (Glaw and Vences 2007), Andringitra between 1,240 and 1,300 m (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1996), Ampamakiesiny at 820 m (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1993) and Ivohibe at 1,750 m (Raselimanana 1999). The northernmost record is from Ranomafana (Glaw and Vences 2007). The skink's extent of occurrence is estimated to be 18,679 km, although it is possible that this cryptic lizard has a larger range (F. Glaw pers. comm. June 2011).
