Range Description

This species is distributed from the Eastern Cape Province in South Africa, north through a fairly patchy distribution in South Africa and then extending northwards through the east of Africa all the way to Sudan and parts of Ethiopia. Presently, ssp. zoroastres is also described from the Cameroon highlands and Bioko, but there is a widespread consensus that it should be a distinct species because of its isolation. The distribution is somewhat patchy, but this species still has a huge extent of occurrence in excess of 20,000 km2 and although smaller, an area of occupancy also certainly in excess of 2,000 km2.
