How to identify between similar species

Similar to Rhampholeon Beraduccii, I don’t know differences. . .


It seems to live in Udzungwa Mountains in Iringa and Nguru Mountain in Morrogoro.

There is a record in Udzungwa National Park in iNaturalist.

For details of the area, please refer to Iringa information and Morogoro information in the mountains.

Where to find

Like other common pygmy chameleons, they live on the forest floor behind fallen leaves during the day,

It seem to sleep on a tree branch about 10-30 cm above the surface at night.
