Range DescriptionThis species is found in SÃ£o Vicente in the Cape Verde Islands. Within this island it appears to be absent from the region between SÃ£o Pedro and Mindelo (Schleich 1987). This species is likely to have been introduced to Santo AntÃ£o, where it has recently been recorded from Sinagoga, however, this might represent a natural colonization (Vasconcelos et al. 2010). LÃ³pez-Jurado et al. (2005) report this species from Santa Luzia and Branco Islet, but this is unreferenced and is thought likely to be a typographic error (Vasconcelos et al. 2013). It has an estimated extent of occurrence of 151 km2 (Vasconcelos et al. 2013).
