DistributionRead full entry
Range DescriptionThis species ranges from southern South Africa along the south and east coast, from Bonnievale in Western Cape Province eastwards through the Eastern Cape Province to coastal KwaZulu-Natal Province, and inland to the borders of Lesotho, and the Drakensberg escarpment of Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces and Swaziland, then northwards to Zimbabwe, western Mozambique, and southwestern Zambia. Although the presence of this species is uncertain in Botswana, its distribution on the map does overlap into this area. It also most probably occurs throughout Lesotho but more sampling is required to confirm this. It is sporadically distributed in the high-altitude grasslands of the eastern Free State, Guateng, North West and Limpopo Provinces of South Africa. It occurs from sea level to 1,100 m asl.
