Range Description

This species occurs only in south-eastern Madagascar in a thin strip of forest that runs from the Manampatrana River south to the Mananara River. An isolated population of this species occurs in the Manombo Special Reserve and in Mahabo Forest south of Farafangana. Recent analyses of Landsat imagery estimate that total habitat remaining within this species’ range is less than 700 km² (Johnson and Wyner 2000; Irwin et al. 2005). South-east of the Andringitra Massif, there is a 60 km wide hybrid zone between what is now E. rufifrons and E. cinereiceps at the Iantara River (headwaters of the Manampatrana), characterized by high density of figs and a high density of hybrid lemurs (58 /km²; Irwin et al. 2005). Ranges from 20-1,500 m.
