Range Description

Ranges from eastern Zimbabwe and central Mozambique northwards through Malawi, eastern Zambia, south-eastern DR Congo Tanzania, to the Lukenya foothills of Kenya. There are outlying records from Mweru Wantipa in the north of Zambia, and from the Zimbabwean side of the middle Zambezi R. near Lake Kariba (Taylor in press). Present on Zanzibar. Recorded to 1,850 m asl (De Luca and Mpunga 2005).

Reported from Yemen (Nader and Al-Safadi 1991), although Simmons (1995) states that this record requires confirmation.
