 Comments
       
  Comment: Status: IUCN 2003 - Not evaluated; not considered in IUCN/SSC Action Plan (2001). Fahr et al. (2002) suggested that this species be listed as Vulnerable  
    Comments: maclaudi species group. Smith and Hood (1980) considered this taxon to be a junior synonym of maclaudi, but morphological differences and a major range disjunction indicate that maclaudi and ruwenzorii are distinct species; see Csorba et al. (2003) and Fahr et al. (2002). Does not include hilli, a taxon sometimes considered a junior synonym of ruwenzorii (Fahr et al., 2002)
