Great Fish River, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa.
Not very closely related to African congeners; perhaps closest to African I. variegatus and I. minor and Oriental I. xanthonotus and I. archipelagicus; possibly not too distant from Melichneutes robustus. Moderate individual, seasonal and altitudinal variation, along with mosaic pattern of geographical variation, makes racial subdivision impracticable. Monotypic.
Sahel zone from Senegambia and S Mali across to Eritrea, S to near coast of W Africa, SE Sierra Leone, SE Gabon, coastal and SE Congo#R#R, and S (around main forested belt) through EC Africa including E & S DRCongo, much of E Africa, and from Angola, NE Namibia and N & E Botswana to Mozambique, S to Cape Province.
