Range Description

This species is endemic to the Ethiopian Highlands(Evanset al.2011). It is known from two sites in the mountains east of the Rift Valley: between Dodola and Asela (the type locality) at 2,651 m asl, and in the Arsi Mountains at 2,467 m asl. Further searches have also found this species inareas northwest of the Rift Valley including two localities at 2,390 and 2,377 m asl north of Mount Choke but south of Lake Tana, and a third locality at 2,709 m asl north of Lake Tana but south of the Simien Mountains (Evans et al. 2011). Taking range as a proxy for extent of occurrence (EOO), this is estimated to be 3,681 km2. This frog is believed to be restricted to the known range.
