Range Description

This species has a very restricted range in the montane region of eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. It is currently known only from three localities. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it has been recorded from Chaya, Ruchuru (type locality). In Uganda, it has been recorded within the Bwindi Forest Impenetrable National Park (Kasangaki et al. 2003) and possibly occurs in the Mbanga Forest ~113 km (70 miles) northwest of Entebe. Surveys within the area suggest that it does not range to the west of the known localities. It occurs at elevations between 1,000-2,000 m asl.
