Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the island of Mayotte, a French territory in the Comoros archipelago. It has almost exclusively been observed in pristine humid forests 100 m asl or above. Only a few juvenile specimens were observed in areas of degraded forest or plantations adjacent to natural forests (Meirte 1999, Meirte 2004, Hawlitschek et al. in prep.). For extent of occurrence, we assume the area of Mayotte (376.5 km²). As area of occupancy, we assume the area of closed forest above 100 m asl, as based on field surveys and a remote sensing analysis (Hawlitschek et al. in prep.), a total area of 24.8 km².
