It ranges in West Africa from Sierra Leone eastwards to the Dahomey Gap, and then from Nigeria into West Africa, where it ranges from Cameroon, southwards as far as central Angola, and eastwards as far as eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Rwanda. In East Africa, it has been recorded from Uganda, western Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia (though not yet recorded from Katanga Province). It is likely to occur in Benin, although there are no specimen records from this country. It has been recorded on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea. It has been recorded up to 2,400 m asl.
