Range Description

This species is endemic to Madagascar where it is found from the north-west to the south-west of the island. It is known to occur in areas with dry deciduous or spiny forest from 50 to 870 m above sea level (Goodman and Cardiff 2004; Goodman et al. 2005). Although further surveys may reveal that this species is more widespread than currently known, it has yet to be recorded from some sites with extensive limestone caves, from where it would be expected based on habitat preference and distribution (Goodman and Cardiff 2004; Goodman et al. 2005; Cardiff 2006).
