Range Description

The typical subspecies is recorded from south-west Madagascar, extending towards the central high-plateau. This subspecies is common throughout its range. The habitat for the high-plateau populations is highly fragmented.

The subspecies E. a. oncoclada can be found in the Tulear/Saint-Augustin region and on some high plateau inselbergs. The Tulear subpopulation is thriving and is definitely Least Concern, but the high plateau subpopulations occur in an extremely fragmented habitat. There are no longer any links between the different subpopulations of this subspecies.
