Range Description

This species is endemic to the island of Madagascar. As with other species formerly included in C. major and regarded as distinct, the range of C. crossleyi remains to be determined. Groves (2000, 2001) describes it as running inland to that of C. major in eastern Madagascar and extending farther to the north, this based on specimens from Lac Alaotra, Andasibe, and Vohémar. According to Hapke et al. (2005), this is also one of three Cheirogaleus species found west of Tolagnaro, along with C. major and C. medius.
