Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to Province Sud, New Caledonia. It is known only from a number of isolated populations across the far south of Grande Terre (south of Mt Koghis). Known populations are widely scattered and often in small, isolated closed forest remnants. It occurs at elevations between 20 m to 600 m. The extent of occurrence is approximately 900 kmÂ², and the area of occupancy is estimated to be < 100 kmÂ².
[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.]
