Range Description

Trithemis furva is widespread from the south of Africa to Cameroon and the Red Sea coasts of eastern Africa and southwesternArabia. In Africa, it is widespread in southern and eastern Africa from South Africa to Ethiopia, records from Nigeria and possibly Chad may be correct, but presence further west (from Guinea) must be confirmed. In central Africa, it is known from Angola, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Zambia, and assumed to be present in Congo. In eastern Africa, it has been recorded in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and Burundi, where it is common and widespread. It is assumed to also occur in Malawi and Burundi. In northeastern Africa, the species is recorded from Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Eritrea and Somalia, and assumed from Chad and Uganda. The species is widespread in the southern Africa region. In western Africa, the species is known from Nigeria and possibly Chad, although presence further west (from Guinea) needs to be confirmed but is possible given the large range of thespecies and the habitat preference.
