Note
Several species have been described from the French Cameroons by Engler and K. Krause, but I have not been able to see material of them. The types have presumably been destroyed. With further material from the type localities it may be possible to prove that some of these species are the same as some of those described above.

Native to:

Cameroon, Gabon, Nigeria
