This species ranges from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia, south through East Africa to South Africa and Botswana, and west to Angola and southern Republic of the Congo. There do not appear to be confirmed records from Burundi and Rwanda, though it is likely to occur in these countries (Poynton et al., 2004).

P. anchietae occurs in savanna habitat in all sub-Saharan countries from Angola to Ethiopia in the north, southward to eastern Namibia (Caprivi), eastern Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique (Poynton and Broadley 1985b). This species is found in South Africa, Lesotho, and Swaziland (Text from Minter et al., 2004, © SI/MAB Biodiversity Program).
