|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is endemic to western and southwestern Cameroon, where it occurs between 450 and 1,200 m in the foothills and slower slopes of the "Dorsale Camerounaise", in the Mbam River valley, east to the Bamileke and Bamoun Platueas, extending as far as Makouopnsap. It might extend further north and east than current records suggest, but it is unlikely to occur much further west. Its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2.|
