This species was considered extinct until it was rediscovered by Page & D'Argent in the 1990's. With this additional documentation of the species its pubescence now seems to show continuous variation, rather than separating two distinct populations, consequently var. pubescens is not separated here.


Mauritius, in wet forests and lower montane forests at 500-700 m.
