Range Description

This species is distributed across southern West Africa from Sierra Leone to southern Togo (Chippaux 2006). Isolated records in Cameroon and Nigeria are regarded as questionable by Chippaux (2006) and (in Cameroon) Chirio and LeBreton (2007). Its presence in Benin is uncertain (J. Penner pers. comm. 2012). Records from Gabon are considered to be misidentifications (Pauwels and Vande Weghe 2008). This species is known to occur up to 600 m above sea level (Ineich 2003).
