Range Description

This species was described as recently as 1991, and was previously known only from southern Chad, northern Cameroon, north-west Nigeria, northern Côte d'Ivoire (C. Chappuis 1999 per F. Dowsett-Lemaire in litt. 2000) and the Gambia (Barlow et al. 1997). However it has recently been demonstrated that the taxon C. ruficeps guinea, whose voice was previously unknown, is conspecific with this species (Dowsett-Lemaire et al 2005). It is therefore now known to also occur in Mali, Togo, Ghana, Niger, Benin, Senegal and Sudan (Dowsett-Lemaire et al 2005).
