Range Description

This holotype was described from two specimens from La Réunion and one of these was designated as the lectotype but is now in very poor condition (Goodman et al. 2005). In Madagascar, it is known only from a single specimen collected in 1868, at Sarodrano, near Toliara in the south (Goodman et al. 2005). The identity of the Madagascar specimen cannot be confirmed due to absence of reliable material from La Réunion. The area near Sarodrano has been relatively well surveyed recently, but no new specimens were obtained (Goodman et al. 2005).
