Range Description

Crocidura poensis is found in West Africa and Central Africa. It ranges from Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia , through Cte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria to Cameroon. It is also present on Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea and Principe Island in Sao Tome and Principe. It may range further east than Cameroon, however, there is some unresolved confusion between the distribution of this species and Crocidura batesi. Its elevational range is from just above sea level up to several hundred metres in Cameroon highlands.
