Range DescriptionThis species is known from two-threat defined locations: Mount Mulanje in southern Malawi and Mount Namuli in Mozambique (Broadley 2008). Records from the Zomba Mountains (near to Mulanje, Malawi) still need to be confirmed as the region requires extensive surveying. The species is found as low as 700 m asl in the Ruo Basin, but also occurs higher up on Mount Mulanje, including on the plateau, probably up to at least 2,500 m asl. As the region is poorly surveyed, it is unknown whether this species could occur more widely (Poynton pers. comm. 2012). The extent of occurrence is (EOO) 3,988 km2, excluding the possible Zomba records.
