Range Description

This species has been recorded from Senegal and southern Mauritania (Trape et al. 2006). Its full distributional range is uncertain, but it appears to be confined to westernmost West Africa (Trape et al. 2006). The northernmost record is in south-central Mauritania (Chippaux 2006) and the known southern limit of this species' range is several hundred metres from the northern border with the Gambia (Trape et al. 2006). Trape et al. (2006) assert that there is no doubt the species is also present in this latter country. Due to taxonomic changes, its full elevational range is uncertain, but it has been recorded between 0-150 m asl.
