Distribution

P. spurrelli   was reported only from Ghana and Kenya. Such scattered known distribution implies poor knowledge of the distributional range of the species. This is also the first record of the Palaeugoa   genus in Cameroon. The two records from Mount Cameroon were made in lowland and upland forests (from 350 to 1,100 m a.s.l.) (Fig. 10 View Figure 10 ).
