Range Description

This species is known only from high altitudes in north-western Rwanda, south-western Uganda and adjacent eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Its range is centred on the Virunga volcanoes, with an altitudinal range of 2,000-2,800m asl and occasionally down to 1,500m asl. The map in Schiotz (1999) is in error, since it is, by mistake, a duplicate of that for Leptopelis oryi.
