Range DescriptionThis recently described species is endemic to Madagascar (Goodman et al. 2006). It is restricted to the karstic lowland areas in the western part of the island, extending from the drier areas in the north in Diana Region to Parc National Tsingy de Bemaraha in the west (Goodman et al. 2005). A record from Toliara in the extreme south has also been attributed to this species (Peterson et al. 1995), but the specimen was not examined as part of the recent reassessment of Emballonura taxonomy on Madagascar (Goodman et al. 2006). The distribution of this species would be significantly reduced if the Toliara specimen was omitted. It is currently known to range between 10 and 330 m elevation (Goodman et al. 2006).
