Range Description

This is a species of wetter forests in good condition that occurs between Nigeria (mainly or only east of the Niger) and Uganda, northwestern Tanzania, most of the Central African Republic, and northern Zambia. Records from west of the Dahomey Gap almost certainly refer to the endemic C. petersi. It is much rarer than the very common C. etheocles (Larsen 2005). Nonetheless, the species is definitely valid and widely distributed in the main equatorial forest zone. This gives a large extent of occurrence (EOO) and as suitable habitat is still widely available, the area of occupancy (AOO) is also fairly large.
