This chameleon is endemic to the island of Madagascar, where it is found in a number of localities in the east. The northernmost record of this species is from Marojejy (Raselimanana et al. 2000) and the southernmost from Marolambo (Gehring et al. 2010). At Marojejy it has been found at low elevations, between 440 and 720 m (Raselimanana et al. 2000). Other confirmed localities include Tsararano (Andreone et al. 2000), Anandrivola (Raxworthy 1988) and Masoala (F. Andreone pers. comm. January 2011). It has been recorded over an area of 17,432 km at suitable elevations, and it appears to occur as highly localized subpopulations (C. Raxworthy pers. comm. January 2011).
