Africa: Cunene, Okavango, upper Zambezi, Buzi and Pungwe rivers; an isolated population occurs in the Ruo River (lower Zambezi system) in Malawi; also in the Cuanza River, Angola (Ref. 52193). In the Congo basin known from the Kwango in Angola (Ref. 11970). Possibly also in the Inkisi (lower Congo)(Ref. 12818, 120641), Lufira and Luwombwa (upper Congo basin) (Ref. 12818) but this needs confirmation.
