Range Description

This species is endemic to South Africa, where it occurs widely in Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, and Western Cape provinces, with a single record from the North West province. The occurrence of G. ocularis in KwaZulu-Natal, due to a single skin collected in 1915 some 400 km from its known range, is doubtful (Taylor et al. 1994).
