Range Description

Patchily distributed in the Horn of Africa region, being present in southern and south-eastern Ethiopia, southern Somalia and northern Kenya (Kingdon and Van Rompaey in press). Laurent and Laurent (2002) recorded this species from Djibouti (though this requires confirmation). A single, uncertain sighting in Mkomazi, Tanzania, might extend the species range into the north-eastern parts of Tanzania (J. Kingdon pers. obs.). They occur up to around 600 m in Ethiopia (Yalden et al. 1980, 1996).
