Range Description

This species is only known from specimens collected from Marojejy mountains in northeastern Madagascar (Brygoo 1978). Despite several surveys, it has not been recorded from other nearby mountain tops. It is therefore reported to be endemic to Marojejy National Park (Atkinson and Mathieu 2006) and is found between 1,900 and 2,000 m above sea level (Glaw and Vences 2007). As it is restricted to a very narrow elevational band on Marojejy, its extent of occurrence is thought to be around 10 km (C. Raxworthy pers. comm. June 2011).
