Range Description

This species is endemic to the island of Mayotte, a French territory in the Comoros archipelago. It is most commonly found close to sea level. Only a subpopulation at Choungui exists at higher elevations - up to 564 m (Meirte 1999, Meirte 2004, Carretero et al. 2005, Hawlitschek et al. in prep.). For extent of occurrence, we use the area of Mayotte (376.5 km²). For area of occupancy, we assume this to be the area of suitable habitats, including natural and degraded forests, coastal dry vegetation, mangroves and plantations, as based on field surveys and a remote sensing analysis (Hawlitschek et al. in prep.), a total area of 98.9 km².
