Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is mainly located in the uplands within most of the native forest. It has a rather broad distribution extending from southwest of the island to the east at Mt. des Creoles, and as far north as Gaulettes Serres. Historically it has been collected at Le Pouce (in 1864), but no collection from this locality has been made since. The Pouce forest is extremely degraded by alien species. It has been collected from Savanne, Colville near Moka, Mt. Bambous and Mt. Blanche, in the past but is now extirpated from these localities.
