Assessor(s)
D.A. Snijman, D. Raimondo & J.E. Victor
Justification
Known from one location, where 350 adult plants have been counted. The only known subpopulation is potentially threatened by scouring of its seasonal wash habitat by excessive flooding, damage by baboons, flower picking and livestock overgrazing and trampling.

Major habitats
Gamka Karoo
Description
Gamka Karoo, on north-facing slopes in seasonal washes amongst chips of grey slate (shales).
Threats
This species' habitat is prone to scouring by excessive flooding due to soil erosion in the catchment area. The bulbs are dug up by baboons and the flowers are picked by the local farmers. The latter may affect seed production and dispersal. Overgrazing may also have some impact on the population.
