|Comment||CONSERVATION STATUS. Dierogekko poumensis is extremely common at its type locality and occurs in lesser abundance at other sites on the massif. However, the total area of Sommet Poum is small and populations of D. poumensisare patchy. Given the highly restricted known range of this species and serious threats to its habitat, BAUER et al. (2006) regard it as Critically Endangered.|
Abundance: only known from the type locality (Meiri et al. 2017).
|Etymology||ETYMOLOGY.—The specific epithet poumensis refers to the occurrence of this species on Sommet Poum, the northernmost of the northwest ultramafic peaks of the Grande Terre. It is roughly sympatric with D. inexpectatus.|
