Range Description

This species occurs along the coast of western North Africa. It ranges from the environs of Agadir in Morocco, south through coastal Western Sahara, to Cap Blanc in Mauritania. A record from further south, Dakar in Senegal, represents an erroneous locality, and there are no confirmed records of this species from Senegal (Ineich et al. 1998, Padial 2006). It is a coastal lowland species that occurs up to 20 km from the coast, and from 0-100 m asl.
