Range DescriptionThis species is known from four localities in Nigeria and has also been recorded in Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia and Guinea. It is thought that this species may also occur in Sierra Leone (Grubb et al. 1998). In Ghana, one of the specimens was collected from the Adumanya Sacred Grove which is a traditionally protected 1.5 ha remnant of forest near Dodowa on the Accra Plains (Decher et al. 1997). Two other specimens where collected at the Draw River Forest Reserve in southwestern Ghana by McCullough et al. (2005). The Nigerian specimens are described by Hutterer and Happold (1983). C. buettikoferi occurs at elevations from near sea-level, up to a few hundred metres.
