Distribution

This species was previously known from the Congolian and Shaba biogeographic regions ( Przybyłowicz 2013). Our record extended its distribution to the Guinean biogeographic region. We collected it only in submontane and montane forests (1,450 and 1,850 m a.s.l.) (Fig. 6 View Figure 6 ).
