Distribution

A. macaria   was known from the western part of the Guinean biogeographic region only (most countries along the seashore between Senegal and Ghana). Our record from Cameroon therefore extended its distribution for over 1,000 km westwards to the easternmost edge of the Guinean biogeographic region. In the Mount Cameroon region, it was collected in the two lowest localities (30 and 220 m a.s.l.).
