Range DescriptionCrocidura ansellorum is known from gallery forests in northwestern Zambia. It is restricted to the Ikelenge Pedicle. The holotype and paratype were collected in 1973 from Isombu stream and another paratype was collected from Nyansowe stream. A new specimen was collected on Hillwood Farm in 1990, in the leaf litter under gallery forest along Kazombi stream (Cotterill 2002). It is possible that this species also occurs in adjacent Congo (it has been collected 4 km from the border with Congo) and eastern Angola, but no surveys have been undertaken for the species in theses area. Expeditions into Pemba did not find it despite the presence of suitable Mushitu forest (evergreen) habitat.
