Range Description

This relatively newly described species is probably restricted to the Sambirano region in northwestern Madagascar, including the Ampasindava Peninsula (Thalmann and Geissmann 2000). The northern extent of its distribution is possibly the Sambirano River and the southern limit either the Andranomalaza or Maevarano River. It also has been reported from the western slopes of the Manongarivo Special Reserve (identified by Raxworthy and Rakondroparany 1988 as A. laniger; reclassified by Thalmann and Geismann 2000). It occurs from sea level to 1,600 m. The extent of occurence (EOO) is estimated less than 820 km.
