Range Description

This species is endemic to the Jos Plateau and its north and eastward extensions, in northern Nigeria (Payne 1998). There is a possible recent sighting of the species in the Mandara Mountains in north-east Nigeria near the Cameroon border, and northern Nigerian sightings of L. rubricata from Ririwai and Aliya may also refer to this species (Payne 1998). Another known site (Panshanu) is within the Magama Forest Reserve, where the vegetation is apparently little changed since 1968 (Payne 1998).
