Range Description

Brycinus kingsleyae is known from Banana (Lower Congo system), from the Lindi River and the Congo River just downstream of Kisangani (Central Congo system) and from the upper Congo system. This species has recently been collected in the Lulua River (Kasai). It has been reported by Borodin (1936) from Lake Tanganyika, but its presence in this area is certainly dubious (Poll, 1946). Brycinus kingsleyae was described from the Ogowe basin in Gabon. It is also found in the Sanaga, Nyong and Ntem basins in Cameroon, the Nyanga basin in Gabon, the Loémé and Kouilou basins in Congo and the Chiloango basin in Cabinda (Angola).
