Distribution

This species was known from Ghana and Democratic Republic of Congo ( Przybyłowicz and Bąkowski 2011). Our record confirmed its probable occurrence across the Afrotropical rainforest zone by partially filling the distributional gap. On Mount Cameroon, it was recorded from lowland to submontane forests (650 and 1,450 m a.s.l.) (Fig. 8 View Figure 8 ).
