Range Description

This species is endemic to the island of Madagascar. As a result of Groves’ (2000, 2001) revision of Cheirogaleus, this species has now been split into several and it is not clear how the new taxonomy affects its overall distribution, although it is still considered to be widespread ranging from Andohahela in the south to the Sambava region in the north. The southern extent of its distribution is verified by Hapke et al. (2005), who apparently found it along with C. medius and C. crossleyi near Tolagnaro. In addition, there are two records from Bemeraha and one from Bongolava (Thalmann 2000). Ranges from sea level to 1,800 m.
