Range Description

This species was described from Caffraria (Boheman 1857),an inexact region often considered to be centred on the modern South African province of KwaZulu-Natal and the adjoining part of the Eastern Cape. It is restricted to the dry and moist savannas of southeast Africa, primarily in northeast South Africa, southern Mozambique and Zimbabwe (Australian CSIRO 1970-1986, unpublished records). Reports from Botswana and Namibia remain unverified, but may represent marginal occurrence close to some Zimbabwean and South African localities. Records from Kenya (Schoolmeesters 2011)would be erroneous (A. Davis pers. obs. 2012).
