Range Description

This species has been recorded from montane areas of central and western Kenya, southwestern Uganda, northwestern Rwanda, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, western Tanzania (Mahale Mountains), northeastern Zambia and northern Malawi (Misuku Hills). It probably occurs also in Burundi, and is likely to be more widespread than mapped in the mountains around the Albertine Rift in Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. It occurs from 1,500 m asl (perhaps lower) up to at least 3,000 m asl. Records from central Malawi require confirmation, as do low-altitude records in the Lake Victoria basin in Kenya and Uganda.
