Range Description

This species is endemic to Madagascar where it is known from five areas in the the north and northwest of the island: around Antsiranana and Sambirano region (Andreone et al. 2003, Rakotondravony 2006, D'Cruze et al. 2007, Megson et al. 2009), Montagne de Francais, Daraina and Vohemar (A. Raselimanana pers. comm. January 2011), Masoala Peninsula (Glaw and Vences 2007), Nosy Be and Ankifina (A. Raselimanana pers. comm. January 2011). Subpopulations are separated by very arid areas where the species appears not to occur; however, this arboreal lizard may also have been under-collected, and its distributional extent might be greater and less fragmentary than is currently recognized. Its estimated extent of occurrence, based on the combined areas encompassed by the known subpopulations, is 7,986 km. This lizard has been recorded from sea level to 500 m in elevation.
