It has been recorded from the Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve and the Marojejy National Park (Goodman and Jenkins 1998, 2000). It is also known from the western slope of a massif outside of the Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve which will soon become a protected area. Further research is needed into the population, range, biology and ecology of this species, especially to determine its full distribution and habitat needs.
