Range DescriptionThis recently described species is endemic to Madagascar, where it is currently known only with certainty from a pair in amplexus, and subsequently a number of tadpoles, collected at the type locality of "from km 6 on road Ifanadiana–Tolongoina, 21°21'21'' S, 47°36'47'' E, 468 m asl, Fianarantsoa Province, Southern Central East of Madagascar" (Köhler et al. 2008). A further pair in amplexus, tentatively assignable to this species, has been recorded at a site locally known as Imaloka in the Ranomafauna National Park (21°14'32'' S, 47°27'55'' E, approximately 900-1,000 m asl) (Köhler et al. 2008). The identity of animals in Ranomafauna needs confirmation and the species is provisionally mapped at this locality. It appears to be a somewhat secretive species and may have been overlooked at additional localities in the eastern tropical moist forests of Madagascar (Köhler et al. 2008).
