Range Description

This species was described in 2001 and is known only from one site on the summit of Mount Oku (at 3,000 m asl), in the Bamenda Highlands in western Cameroon (Boistel and Amiet 2001). Due to the absence of suitable vegetation at other localities in Cameroon, this species is probably endemic to this area and specifically the summit of Mount Oku. Its extent of occurrence (EOO) and area of occupancy (AOO) are both estimated at 2 km and the entire site is considered a single threat-defined location.
