Range Description

This recently described species is known from the west bank of the Congo River, where it has only been recorded from western Congo and the Central African Republic. Surveys have not found Congosorex verheyni south of the Congo River, and it does not seem to occur east of Ubangi (Oubango) River. There are presently three recorded localities, two of which are in protected areas. This species has not been recorded from Cameroon, though it is likely that is occurs there. It may also be found to occur in Gabon, though there is no evidence of its existence there at present.
