Range Description

This species is endemic to the south of Grande Terre, New Caledonia (northernmost locality is Pic Ningua). It is known from at least seven widely scattered and isolated locations (Fort Nord, Fort Cache, Bois de Sud, Riviere Bleue, Mt. Koghis, Vulcain, and Pic Ningua). Occurs at altitudes ranging from 80 to 950 m asl.

The extent of occurrence is estimated at approximately 3,000 km and the area of occupancy at 700 km.

[Extent of occurrence was based on a crude measure of overall length times width of the most distant known locations (a rough measure of the line around the points), except for very widespread species where the published areas of the islands were taken. Area of occupancy is a contraction of that rough estimate for extent of occurrence based on where habitat remains.]
