Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the island of Madagascar. Groves (2000) reports examining specimens from three southern Madagascar sites: Tabiky, an un-named location 170 km east of Tuléar, and Tolagnaro. However, the presence of C. adipicaudatus in the region of Tolagnaro is not supported by Hapke et al. (2005), whose findings document instead the presence of three other Cheirogaleus species from that region (crossleyi, medius, and majori). Until more focused field surveys are undertaken, the range of this species is probably best described as south-western Madagascar.
