Range Description

This species has been recorded in much of West Africa (including northern parts of Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Cte d'Ivoire, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, much of Senegal, Gambia, and Burkina Faso, and southern parts of Mali and Niger). There are isolated records from southwestern Mauritania, as well as western parts of the Central African Republic. The eastern parts of the distribution include records from Sudan, and the northern parts of Uganda and Kenya. Further south this species is found in Mozambique, western Angola and Namibia. There is uncertainty about a range which encompasses south Zambia, north Botswana, possibly South Africa, and south-east Angola.
