Range Description

This species was described from an unspecified locality en route to the ruined city of Meroë in arid northern Sudan and is cited as occurring widely in north central and north-east Africa (Ferreira 1972, Schoolmeesters 2011), although no specific localities have been published. Two unpublished localities from Wad Medani on the Blue Nile in the Sudan and from Yagoua in northern Cameroon (P. Moretto pers. comm. 2012) suggest that this species may occur in the eastern part of the northern dry to arid savanna zone of Africa.
