Range Description

Globally, B. caffra is reported from the highlands of Ethiopia and East Africa, southwards into DRC, Angola and Zimbabwe with an isolated living population in Naukluftberge, Namibia. It is widespread in South Africa. The map follows Brown's (1994) suggestion that the distribution of this species probably follows that of the genus as a whole. It probably occupies much of the range known for the genus (Brown 1994). (Refer to the map for B. caffra which represents the whole genus.) The genus is widely thought to occur only in Africa but reports of its presence in the southern part of Sout.
