Range Description

This species was described based on one specimen from "Lagos, Sierra Leone" and has not been found in any other country (Gans 1987). This locality is questionable and no similar specimens have been identified from Sierra Leone; moreover no locality with the name Lagos is known in this country (Gans 1987). Morphologically the holotype resembled western West African species, suggesting that the "Lagos" in question is not the Nigerian megalopolis (Gans 1987).
