The Red-legged Fire-Millipede (Aphistogoniulus corallipes) is endemic to the forest of Manantantely, a small, isolated forest fragment in southeastern Madagascar. Hence, both its estimated extent of occurrence and area of occupancy are restricted to an area of just 10 km². The forest of Manantantely is unprotected and rapidly declining and degrading due to the slash and burn agriculture and timber collection practised by the surrounding communities. Based on its small distribution range and its restriction to one location, as well as the decline of the species' EOO, AOO, habitat and number of mature individuals, Aphistogoniulus corallipes is seriously threatened by extinction and consequently listed as Critically Endangered under criterion B1.
