Coenagriocnemis insularis is endemic to Mauritius, the genus is endemic to the Mascarenes. Recently this species was found at two localities: in montane forests in the south-east of Mauritis and in the northern part of the island (A. Martens, unpubl.). Old locality records (e.g., Pinhey 1962) could not be confirmed any more – the populations in the highlands between Moka and Curepipe now seem to be extinct (A. Martens, unpubl.).
Current population size is unknown.
