DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species is endemic to the Cape Verde Islands where its known distribution is restricted to the northernmost points of the small island of Maio in the vicinity of Baía do Navio Quebrado, Porto Cais and Praia Real (Monteiro et al. 2004), occupying just two small habitats within a coastline of approx 9 km mainly along the western sides of these promontories. There are at least 2 or 3 subpopulations with different colour patterns, and these are connected by an outer reef (M.J. Tenorio pers. comm. 2011).
