Undisturbed forest is most frequently used in the Udzungwa Mountains, but it has also locally been recorded at high density in forest with a history of cultivation or partial logging decades earlier (29). In the East Usambara foothills it occurs in both gently sloping and very steep terrain, and in a variety of habitats from relatively undisturbed forest with canopy up to 40 m, to lower-canopy logged forest with an understory dominated by the bamboo-like grass Olyra latifolia (4). However, it seemed to occur principally in forests with less logging, and a high, closed canopy and a relatively open understory (4).
