Range Description

The species has been recorded from South Kenya to Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe. The first Kenyan record is from the Taita Hills, ranges further from Mt Kilimanjaro and the Usambara Mts in Tanzania to Katanga (Democratic Republic of Congo), Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Pinheys (1984) Zambian records probably all pertain to A. pseudeudoxia. An old and poorly labelled male, already examined by Ris (1912), may indicate an isolated presence of A. biordinata in the Cameroon highlands. However, it is the only specimen seen from the region, and clusters with males from Zimbabwe. This is a highland species absent from lowland and coast areas. The southern Zambian records are likely to belong to A. eudoxia.

In central Africa, it is present in southern Democratic Republic of Congo and assumed from Cameroon.

In eastern Africa, it was recorded from Kenya (Taita Hills in south east Kenya), Uganda, Burundi, and various localities from Mountains and highlands in Tanzania and Malawi.

This species is known from montane streams in Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe, in southern Africa.
