Range DescriptionThis species is restricted to the Lac Tsimanampetsotsa region of southwestern Madagascar. It has been recorded from the edge of the Mahafaly Plateau north and further south to near the Linta River (Goodman 2003, Mahazotahy et al. 2006). The altitudinal range is 35-145 m asl (Mahazotahy et al. 2006). A model calculated the range to be 442 km2 (Mahazotahy et al. 2006), but a more recent model calculated it to be 1,500km2(Marquard et al. 2011); although thesource is not entirely clear, the figureseems closer toan extent of occurrence (EOO) than an area of occupancy (AOO).
