Range Description

This species is endemic to Vanuatu where it has been documented on the islands of Efate and Espiritu Santo (Cogger and Heatwole 2006), which has an extent of occurrence of less than 15,000 km. Two individuals have also been identified in the Loyalty Islands of New Caledonia (Cogger et al. 2007) though there is no evidence of a breeding population at this location and the individuals may have been migrants or vagrants (A. Lane pers. comm. 2009).
