Distribution

This species was reported from montane regions of Central (Democratic Republic of Congo) and Eastern (Kenya and Tanzania) Africa. Our record thus extended its known range to the Guinean biogeographic region. It was also the first record of Ligulosia   genus in Cameroon. On Mount Cameroon, it has a relatively broad elevational distribution range (650-2,200 m a.s.l.), although most specimens were recorded at the higher elevations (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 ).
