Range Description

Restricted to the mountain areas (above 1,800 to 3,500 m asl) of the Albertine Rift Valley in Burundi, Rwanda and The Democratic Republic of the Congo. Recorded from comparatively small area between 01S and 03S from the Virunga volcanoes and Kahuzi-Biega National Park west of Lake Kivu in The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda, and from northwestern Burundi. It is possibly present in Uganda, although this needs to be confirmed.
