Most species of Brookesia have very small distribution ranges [Raselimanana AP, Rakotomalala D (2003) ], [Raxworthy CJ, Nussbaum RA (1995)]; indeed, almost 50% of the species are known from single localities [Carpenter AI, Robson O (2005)]. Within Brookesia, both species diversity and levels of endemism are highest in northern Madagascar, and are correlated with elevational and environmental heterogeneity in this area [Townsend TM, Vieites DR, Glaw F, Vences M (2009)].
