Distribution

This species was recently described from Gabon and considered as endemic to the country. Our record extended its known distribution to Cameroon, as well as to the Guinean biogeographic region. On Mount Cameroon, our records came from lowland forests only (350 and 650 m a.s.l.) (Fig. 7 View Figure 7 ).

Notes

The species was originally described as Balacra (Daphaenisca) inexpectata   Durante & Zangrilli, 2016. The subgenus was formally raised to genus in Przybyłowicz et al. (2019a), based on the molecular and morphological evidence. In De Prins and De Prins (2019), the junior synonym has still been listed.
