Known solely from the type location in Zaïre.
Wheeler (1922) giving the first description of
akengensis, noted that it had a "dark brown paper nest", perhaps
abandoned by some other species; he noted having a single dealated
female from Liberia in his collection which probably belonged
to the subspecies. Santschi (1935) also noted a specimen from Kasai,
Ngombe, by Dr Schouteden, 9.xi.1921.
