It is found in Cameroon, Gabon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, with one (but doubtful) record from Angola; it might occur in Equatorial Guinea.[1][2][3] It occurs in swamps or along small streams in lowland forests, gallery forests, and degraded secondary habitats (farm bush) in the forest zone. An adaptable species, it is not facing significant threats.[1]
