    Type
    Type: Tanzania, Mpwapwa Distr., Bidgood et al. 1001 (holotype K! sheet 1; isotypes C, CAS, DSM!, EA!, K! sheet 2).
    Distribution
    Central Tanzania, NE Namibia.
    Ecology
    In Tanzania, recorded from dry woodland and scrub with Brachystegiamicrophylla; 1200 – 1250 m alt. In Namibia, in shade of moist dense bushland on sandy soil; altitude unrecorded.
    Conservation
    Assessed by Darbyshire (2010) as IUCN (2001) category Data Deficient (DD); the discovery of a Namibian population greatly extends the Extent of Occurrence but this species remains poorly known and is still clearly scarce. As threats remain unknown, the assessment of DD is upheld here.
