Taxonomic notes

Syn: P. perrieri Gaussen & Woltz 1975 (de Laubenfels 1985).


Distribution and Ecology

Only found on Mt. Tsaratanana in Madagascar (Farjon 1998), which is also the home of P. capuronii.

The IUCN reports that this species is in decline. It is facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild due to severe fragmentation of its existing range (fewer than five known locations), coupled with past and ongoing loss of habitat.
