Range Description

The species is one of the commonest species in southern Africa, becoming progressively scarcer in the north and especially westwards in Africa. In western Africa, it has only been recorded from the north of Ghana and listed in Nigeria. It has not been recorded from Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo yet, but it is likely to occur there too.

In central Africa, the species is recorded from Zambia, and assumed in Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo. Records from Ghana and Liberia need confirmation.

In eastern Africa, it is common and widespread in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Malawi. Its presence in Burundi is assumed.

It has been recorded from Mount Kenya in the northeastern Africa assessment region, and a wider distribution in northern Kenya and southern Sudan is suspected, hence the species is listed as Data Deficient until more surveys are available.

This species is widespread in southern Africa, however, it has not been recorded from Angola yet.

In western Africa, it has only been recorded from the north of Ghana and listed for Nigeria, although this information must be confirmed.
