Range Description

This species was described from Umfuli in Zimbabwe (cited as Mashonaland, Southern Rhodesia) and has been recorded from a few localities widely dispersed across southern, eastern, central (east and north), and western Africa (Australian CSIRO 1970-1986, unpublished records; Schoolmeesters 2011), with no specific localities cited for Congo (Brazzaville), Congo (DRC), and Guinea (Conakry). The southern, eastern and eastern central African localities are mostly from moist uplands or highlands and those from localities to the west are from hot, wet lowlands or the wet uplands of the Fouta Djalon. Assuming that identifications are accurate, the distribution pattern may be an artefact of under collection due to its very small body size. There may also be some form of ecological specialization since by far the greatest number of specimens recorded in a survey of seven localities across the vegetation zones of Cte dIvoire were from La Marahou Game Ranch(Cambefort 1991).
