Range Description

This chameleon is endemic to the island of Madagascar, where it has been reported from Ankaratra (Vences et al. 2002, Randrianantoandro et al. 2010), Andringitra (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1996), and Ivohibe (Raselimanana 1999). There is an isolated record from near Ambohijanahary (H. Rakotondravony pers. comm. 2011). It is known from between 1,550 and 2,550 m asl. (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1996). It has also been reported from sites in Ibity and Itremo, but these require verification (Birkinshaw et al. 2006). Its extent of occurrence, based on the combined area of known sites, is estimated to be 820 km.
