This butterfly currently occurs in a number of localities across a large EOO from Ethiopia and Sudan to the DRC and Tanzania (Kielland 1990, D'Abrera 1997). Because it flies in montane forests and open grasslands, the distribution is somewhat patchy, making the AOO much smaller than the EOO. However, the total area of just ones of the localities for this species, the Greater Virunga Landscape in the DRC, is in excess of 13,000 km2, and whilst only part of this is suitable habitat for the species, it shows that the total AOO of the species must presently exceed 2,000 km2 (WCS 2005). In Tanzania, it is found at altitudes from 1,500 to 2,000 m (Kielland 1990).
