Range Description

This species is endemic to the Antsalova region of western Madagascar (Raselimanana et al. 2006) The precise collecting locality is unknown (Raselimanana et al. 2006), but as this lizard appears to be adapted to an arboreal lifestyle it is thought to be between 100 and 400 m in elevation, the altitudes at which tsingy forest occurs (R. Jenkins pers. comm. July 2011). Intensive surveys within this region at Tsingy de Bemaraha, where the largest remaining tracts of forest are found (R. Jenkins pers. comm. July 2011), have failed to record this species (Bora et al. 2010, Raselimanana 2008). It is not clear whether this is because the species does not occur at the site or because it is difficult to detect (R. Jenkins pers. comm. July 2011).
