Range Description

Dierogekko validiclavis is endemic to Province Nord, New Caledonia. It is known only from a single population (the Pani massif, north-eastern Grande Terre). Confirmed from just two sitesMt Mandjlia and Mt Pani, 35 km apart but the species is expected to be widely distributed along the massif between these two locations as the habitat is continuous and relatively undisturbed. It occurs at elevations between 300 and 500 m. The extent of occurrence is approximately 225 km and the area of occupancy is estimated to be <100 km.

[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.]
