Range Description

this lowland species is found throughout much of West Africa (including Senegal, Liberia, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Burkina, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Niger, and Nigeria), as well as a narrow distribution following the Nile from northern Sudan to Uganda. A second population is known from the east of Lake Victoria in eastern Uganda, western Kenya, and north-western Tanzania. A third, apparently disjunct, population in present in southeastern Kenya and northeastern Tanzania.
The records from Liberia should be re-examined as they may represent a different species, while the record from Malawi is doubtful (J. Fahr pers. comm. 2004).
