Range Description

This species is currently known only from two areas: Dida'a, in the Arsi Mountains east of the Rift Valley, and from the Bale Mountains (Bhme and Rdder 2011), in Ethiopia, at 2,000-3,000 m asl. Each area is considered to comprise one threat-defined location. It is likely to occur more widely on the eastern side of the Ethiopian plateau (A. Mengistu and S. Loader pers. comms. June 2012). Its current range, taken as a proxy for extent of occurrence (EOO) is estimated to be 20 km2.
