This species ranges from southeastern Nigeria eastward to central and southern Cameroon, mainland Equatorial Guinea (Rio Muni), Gabon, southwestern Congo, and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo; it also occurs on Bioko Island (Equatorial Guinea). It presumably occurs in southwestern Central African Republic, and probably also the Cabinda Enclave of Angola. It can occur up to 200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in lowland forest and can survive in degraded secondary habitats. It breeds in flowing water, including creeks in marshes and slow-flowing streams.
It is a very common species.
It is presumably affected by ongoing forest loss.
It presumably occurs in several protected areas, including the Garamba National Park of northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo and the Monte Alen National Park in Equatorial Guinea.
