Range Description

This species from the Seychelles occurs in a few scattered localities on Mahé Island, where it seems to be restricted to higher elevations (above 400 m asl). There are also records from Silhouette Island, which have not been confirmed from specimens; however, despite some doubts, it is highly probable that the species occurs here (J. Gerlach pers. comm. November 2012). Altogether it seems to be limited to two threat-defined locations, one on each island. Using its range as a proxy, its estimated extent of occurrence (EOO) is 15 km2.
