Range Description

The species has been recorded from northern Zambia and western Uganda to Guinea and probably Senegal.

In central Africa, it is known from Cameroon (although this record needs confirmation), Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon and Zambia. It is expected to be also present in Angola, Congo and Equatorial Guinea.

In eastern Africa, it has been recorded in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and Burundi: local species, records from western Kenya, northern Uganda and Tanzania.

In southern Africa, this species is known only from the upper Zambezi River catchment, north west Zambia. It may also occur in east Angola, but his has to be confirmed. It is estimated that less than 5% of the global range occurs within the region, and only four records are known from two localities, the last recorded in 1962.

In western Africa, the species is known from Guinea and probably Senegal to Nigeria.
