Assessor(s)
L. von Staden
Justification
A range-restricted (EOO 4624 km²), but fairly common subspecies. It has lost significant amounts of habitat to crop cultivation across its range, but is resilient to disturbance and not suspected to be in danger of extinction.
Distribution
Endemism
South African endemic
Provincial distribution
Western Cape
Range
Vredenburg Peninsula and Sandveld coast south of Elandsbaai.
Habitat and Ecology
Major system
Terrestrial
Major habitats
Langebaan Dune Strandveld, Saldanha Limestone Strandveld, Saldanha Flats Strandveld, Saldanha Granite Strandveld, Lambert's Bay Strandveld, Hopefield Sand Fynbos, Leipoldtville Sand Fynbos
Description
Coastal flats and dunes.
Threats
More than 40% of this taxon's habitat has been lost to crop fields, and rapid loss is ongoing, particularly in the Sandveld. It is however resilient to disturbance, and able to recolonise old lands, and therefore population decline due to crop cultivation is not likely to be irreversible.
