Range Description

This species is restricted to north-west Africa, with a fragmented range in parts of northern Morocco (Rif and Moyen Atlas), Ceuta (Spain), and northern Algeria (coastal mountain ranges). There is an uncertain record (based on a museum voucher specimen) of this species from northern Tunisia; the presence of Salamandra algira in Tunisia requires further verification. The species has an altitudinal range of approximately 80-2,450m asl.
