Range Description

The species has been recorded from Ethiopia, northern Kenya and Tanzania; it is listed by Tsuda for Angola (needs confirmation) and there are records from southern Democratic Republic of Congo (Dijkstra pers. comm.) and assumed in southern Sudan. Nevertheless the entire "cognatus"-group of Paragomphus is in urgent need of revision, hence a clear statement of the real distribution cannot be made.

In eastern Africa, it is known from streams in the Rift Valley region of the Kenya-Tanzania border (L. Natron, Nguruman escarpment), Nairobi area (often confusion with other Paragomphus species).
