Range Description

Distribution limits are unclear due to confusion with A. victoria,. It is possibly mainly present in the Congo Basin and absent from western Africa. The records from Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone correspond to A. Victoria (Dijkstra pers. comm.). The records from Namibia and Botswana might pertain to another species.

In northeastern Africa, the species is listed by Tsuda for Sudan, but it this record needs confirmation.

In southern Africa, this species occurs in the northwestern part of the region; northwest Zambia, the Caprivi, southwards to the Kwando/Linyanti River. It is likely to also occur in southern Angola.
