Assessor(s)
L. von Staden, P.M. Burgoyne & J.E. Victor
Justification
EOO 52 km², AOO estimated <1 km², four to five known subpopulations are small and isolated and therefore considered severely fragmented, and there is a slight potential threat of harvesting for horticultural purposes, but harvesting appears to not be causing declines and is unlikely to cause extinction in the near future.
Distribution
Endemism
South African endemic
Provincial distribution
Limpopo
Range
Restricted to mistbelt areas in the western Soutpansberg Mountains west of Wyllie's Poort.
Habitat and Ecology
Major system
Terrestrial
Major habitats
Soutpansberg Mountain Bushveld
Description
Mistbelt, grows among large boulders in open woodland or on forest margins.
Threats
As this is a rare, range restricted species, it is potentially threatened by succulent collectors removing mature individuals. However, collecting appears to have only a minimal impact and is not likely to cause declines or local extinctions even at the type locality (Hahn 2002).
