Justification
A very poorly known taxon. Sonder (1894) cites one collection from an unspecified locality in northern Namaqualand. The genus Wahlenbergia is in need of revision, and many collections are difficult to match to described taxa. Snijman (2013) lists W. tenuis under 'insufficiently known' taxa.
