Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the Cape Verde Islands where it is restricted to the island of São Vicente and the neighbouring island of Santa Luzia. On São Vicente it has been found on two sites: Matiota, north of Salamansa in the north along approximately 2 km of coast (now extinct) and on the east coast from Calhau south to Saragasa along approx 12 km of coast.
On the smaller island of Santa Luzia it is only found along a stretch of coast in the south-west (Curral) for approximately 3 km (Monteiro et al. 2004).
