Range Description

This species is a fairly scarce forest butterfly that ranges through much of the main equatorial forest zone from eastern Nigeria and Cameroon to Equatorial Guinea, Gabon (G. Van de Weghe pers. comm. 2008); andKenya and northwestern Tanzania. A distinct subspecies is found on Bioko and another on an island in Lake Kivu. This gives an extent of occurrence (EOO) in the region of three to four million km2 and the area of ocupancy (AOO) is also likely to be very large as the species is widely distributed across its EOO.
