Range Description

This species ranges widely in eastern and southern Africa, occurring mainly in upland areas (especially in the tropics) from Eritrea and Ethiopia south to southern Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, and Angola. It occurs from sea level to 2,000m asl in South Africa 2,800m asl in East Africa and 3,100m asl in Ethiopia. It presumably occurs in extreme southern Namibia and in the Caprivi Strip, but there do not appear to be any records from this country. A record from Landiani in northern coastal Kenya requires confirmation.
