Range Description

According to Prina and Martnez-Laborde (2008), C. fruticosa is endemic to Madeira and Porto Santo; however, Press and Short (1994), Francisco-Ortega et al. (2002) and Borges et al. (2008) suggest that it is also found on the nearby island of Desertas. In Madeira this species is found in the west, near the coast, and in Porto Santo it is found on the peaks of Ana Ferreira, Branco and Castelo.

The area of occupancy (AOO) is less than 500 km2.
