Known from seven localities between Daraina and Ankarafantsika in the northwest but the population is severely fragmented and the area of occupancy for this species is estimated to be only 457 km². Almost all of the known sites are not protected and are subject to clearance, reducing the quality and extent of the habitat and probably reducing the population which is now estimated as 100 mature individuals. Based on this information this species qualifies for listing as Endangered.
