Range Description

The species occurs in South Africa, ranging in the Mpumalanga Highveld from Wakkerstroom northwards to Ermelo and Barberton, and westwards through Standerton district to northeastern Free State (Heilbron/Parys) and possibly eastwards into northeastern Swaziland (Piggs Peak/Mbabane) based on equivocal morphometric identifications that await confirmation by genetic data. A population from the Harrismith area is also provisionally attributed to this form. Distribution models currently being refined predict that geographic range also extends westwards and southwards into other parts of the northeastern Free State.
