Range Description

This species was described from Sena in Mozambique and shows a patchy distribution in dry savannas across Southern Africa as well as a few spot records from East Africa (Australian CSIRO 1970-1986, unpublished records). The disjunct pattern and patchiness may be partly a collecting artefact due to its very small body size, which has presumably resulted in its being overlooked by many collectors. The patchiness may also be partly due to soil type specialization. However, its great abundance in some localities suggests that it may occupy a somewhat wider range than currently known, although this would be limited to appropriate soil type.
