Lake Kivu, eastern Africa.
Sometimes placed with E. atricapilla and E. nonnula in a separate genus, Krimhilda. Formerly considered conspecific with E. atricapilla. Suggestion#R that nominate race may be better included as a race of E. nonnula (in which it was initially described) and keniensis treated as race of E. atricapilla warrants further investigation. Described race graueri (from Mt Sabinjo, in W Kivu Volcanoes) here synonymized with nominate; may merit recognition (perhaps as race of E. atricapilla#R). Two subspecies currently recognized.
