Range Description

Central Africa: Assiminea hessei was originally described it from DRC at Banana, but it has not been relocated since the 1890s. The site may well be lost to urbanization or agricultural development. Brown (1994) has found populations ascribed to the species in Nigeria.

Western Africa: It is found in Nigeria at Port Hartcourt. Also on the coast of Cameroon but outside of the West Africa region assessed (Bandel and Kowalke, 1999). Otherwise it is only found at the type locality in Zaire.
It is probably a rare species rather than an under-recorded species.
