Range Description

Animals credibly referred to this species range from Guinea-Bissau to southern Congo and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and western Uganda (Bwamba). It is recorded from the island of Bioko (Equatorial Guinea). There do not appear to be records from Sierra Leone or Central African Republic, but it is likely to occur in these countries. Records from Sudan might refer to this species. The population from Togo Hills in Ghana (currently included in this species' range) may be conspecific with Arthroleptis poecilonotus or A. zimmeri (Leaché et al. 2006). In southern Cameroon it is widespread at low and medium altitudes up to 1,200 m asl. This is almost certainly a complex of species in urgent need of revision, and so the distribution map should be seen as very preliminary.
