Range Description

This species is endemic to the coast of Angola and was initially thought to be restricted to an approximately 200 km length of shoreline from Limagens in the north to Baia da Lucira in the south (Monteiro et al. 2004). The species is now also found in the southern province of Angola, Namib province, which almost doubles the previously known range (M. J. Tenorio pers. comm. 2011). The area is sparsely populated.
