Biology & Ecology




This species is only known from two specimens collected 17 years apart. The holotype (TM 1496) was collected by A. Eastwood in 1911. The only other known specimen (TM 13104) was collected in 1928 by V. A. Wager. Both specimens were deposited with the Transvaal Museum, where they presumably still reside.
