This species is known from the mountains of western Cameroon. There are records from Banyo (near Batie), Petit Diboum, Mount Bana, Foto, Mbakang, Mount Nlonako and Bafut, with an isolated population to the east on Mount Ngorro. It probably also occurs in the western section of the Adamawa Plateau, and perhaps also in Nigeria. It ranges from 800-1,450m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in degraded forest, dense bush and raffia palm verges along swamps bordering rocky streams. Breeding takes place in streams.
It is a common species.
Although it can tolerate some habitat disturbance, it is probably threatened by habitat loss and degradation due to smallholder farming activities and subsistence wood extraction throughout its range.
It is not known to occur in any protected areas. There is a need for improved habitat protection at sites at which this species is known to occur.
