Range Description

Pternistis griseostriatus is found throughout the escarpment zone and widely in the northern coastal plain of western Angola (Collar and Stuart 1985, Keane et al. in press b, P. Vaz Pinto in litt. 2004, M. Mills in litt. 2005, Mills 2010). It was first collected in 1957 and was recorded on only a few occasions until recently, when observers have been more easily able to enter the country (W. R. J. Dean in litt. 1999, M. Mills in litt. 2005). It appears to be common in some areas (P. Vaz Pinto in litt. 2004, M. Mills in litt. 2005, 2012; Mills 2010).
