Range Description

This species is endemic to Madgascar and is restricted to the north of the island in forest between 1,150 and 1,650 m altitude. It is known from Anjanaharibe Sud (Raxworthy et al. 1998), Manongarivo (Rakotomalala 2002), Marojejy (Raselimanana et al. 2000), Tsaratanana (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1995), and is also found in other forests between these protected areas (Andreone et al. 2000, Rakotomalala and Raselimanana 2003). Its extent of occurrence, based on the combined area of forest blocks where it is known to occur, is estimated to be 11,090 km. This is likely an overestimate since he major forest blocs are isolated from one another by degraded land, and this chameleon has very specific altidudinal and microhabitat requirements and appears intolerant of disturbance (A. Raselimanana pers. comm. July 2011).
