Range Description

Until recently, recorded from only the type locality near Lambert's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa (Helgen and Wilson 2001). Another specimen was collected at Groenriviermond, some 150 km further north along the Namaqualand coast in November 2003 (Northern Cape), suggesting that the range of this species is more extensive than previously recognized, perhaps due to the difficulty in catching these moles. Range continuity between these localities cannot, however, be justifiably assumed as so little is known about the ecological requirements and tolerances of this species.
