Range Description

West African Oyan is endemic to West Africa. It is confirmed only in south-western Cte dIvoire, where it is known from two records; and in eastern Liberia, where there are several records (Van Rompaey and Colyn 2013). The presence of this species in the Kounounkan Massif in south-western Guinea (Barnett et al. 1996) requires confirmation (Van Rompaey and Colyn 2013). There is no confirmed record of the species from Sierra Leone.
