Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable B1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Jean-Louis Amiet, Arne Schiøtz

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is known only from south-western Cameroon at 100-1,100m asl. It occurs as two separate populations: a northern range from Mboassoum and Mankouat (near Nkongsamba) to Fopouanga (near Nkondjock); and a southern population from near Kribi to the general vicinity of Yaounde. It probably occurs a little more widely than current records suggest.
