Range Description

At present, this species is known only from museum specimens representing a handful of localities along a short stretch of Madagascar’s central-eastern coast near Toamasina (Mittermeier et al. 2008). Its range is situated within that of C. major. It is reported by Rasolofoson et al. (2007) in the Makira forest, in the Maroantsetra region, but this is a long way north of the previously documented localities, and it may be that a further new species is involved (C. Groves pers. comm.).
