Range Description

The nominate subspecies flies in parts of South Africas Eastern Cape Province and in most of Western Cape Province. Another subspecies (ssp. extensus) flies widely north of here reaching KwaZulu Natal. It also occurs in Namibia (T.B. Larsen pers. comm. 2008) and Swaziland (Duke et al. 1999). They are found in much of the area as long as Protea species are present and there are numerous known localities (T.B. Larsen pers. comm. 2008). The EOO is large and as the species is widespread within this, the area of occupancy is also fairly large.
