Range Description

This species is only known from the Ankarana Special Reserve in northern Madagascar which has a total surface of 182 km2. Within the Ankarana Reserve, it has been found around the "Petit Tsingy", the "Campment des Anglais" (now called Campement Anilotra), and close to the "Campement des Americains" (now called "Campement d'Andrafiabe") in the west of the reserve, indicating that the species has a wider distribution in the central part of Ankarana. It occurs at low elevations, and records so far come from 50-117m asl. It appears likely that this species is endemic to the Ankarana Reserve, but it cannot be excluded that its also occurs in other remote "tsingy" formations (such as Tsingy de Namoroka or Tsingy de Bemaraha), or in other karstic areas (such as Analamera Reserve).
