Range Description

This species is known only from its holotype which is believed to have been collected near Limbe on the coast of south-western Cameroon. However, caecilians of the genus Crotaphatrema have only been found at high elevations, suggesting that Crotaphatrema bornmuelleri is also a high-altitude species and should be found on Mount Cameroon, which is the nearest mountain to Limbe (Lawson 2000 and Doherty-Bone et al. 2011) and may occur more widely.
