Range Description

Heterotetrax humilis is known only from north and west-central Somalia and adjacent areas of eastern Ethiopia, which it apparently colonised in the 1970s (Urban et al. 1986). In Somalia, it has been considered "common south to 7°N" and scarcer beyond to 4°N (Ash and Miskell 1983). In Ethiopia, it was not uncommon in the Lower Wabi Shebelle and Warder region from 1969 to 1976 (EWNHS 1996), but was not recorded during field surveys in this region during 1995-1996.
