Range Description

This speciesis restricted to the southwest of Madagascar at elevations between 5 and 80 m above sea-level (Raselimanana and Rakotomalala 2003, Raselimanana 2004). The most easterly known location is around Antsokay and the airstrip at Toliara (Brygoo 1971) and the most northerly at Ankotapiky, near Morombe (Raselimanana 2004). The lizard's extent of occurrence is estimated to be around 6,310 km; the Onilahy and Mangoky Rivers appear to form natural boundaries to this species' distribution (Brygoo 1971), and so it is not thought to be more widespread than is currently known.
